The Palestinian Spiderman - Mohammad Al-Sheikh


Mohammad Al-Sheikh practices acrobatics wherever he gets a chance. On the stairs, on the streets, even at a shopping mall. The 12 year old boy from Gaza is now after world fame.


Mohammad al-Sheikh says that "My ambition is to become a famous international star and to break Guinness records". But the young contortionist has many obstacles in his way. Gaza is cut off from the world under a blockade imposed by Egypt and Israel and his coach says it's difficult for them to accept invitations to perform abroad. But Spiderman always finds a way and Mohamad has applied for a spot in the Guinness World Records. His coach hopes that it will give him international attention and an opportunity for the title acrobat to move out of Gaza.
