I read this on Al-Sabah a few days ago:
Iraqi ex-body builder Ali Al-Gayyar thanks governor Arnold Schwarzenegger for covering the expense and facilitating the procedures of his 24 year old daughter's (Zeina) treatment trip.
The newspaper explains that Gayyar and Schwarzenegger became friends after they met in several body building championships back in the sixties and seventies of the last century.
The funny thing was to know that in the 1966 world championship, Schwarzenegger ranked 5th on the world while Gayyar got the bronze medal!
I guess Gayyar was telling himself "who thought that this loser would some day become the governor of California".
