Male, Maldives: The Olympic Council of Asia has a new sports mastermind. Meet Irash Hassan, from Imaduddin School in Male, capital of the Maldives. Irash, 16, emerged as the winner of the OCA's Fun Learn quiz on Sunday morning, displaying a remarkable knowledge of the OCA, Asian Games and the Olympic sports movement in general.

Irash said: "I can't explain how I feel. I was so nervous, especially in the final few questions to decide the winner. "The quiz today was great fun. I think everyone here really loved it and enjoyed themselves.

Most important is that we also learned about many sports and gained a lot of knowledge about the Asian Games through the Fun Learn quiz." Ninety students from 10 schools took part in the Fun Learn quiz, part of the OCA's Fun Run + Learn series to promote the 17th Asian Games in Incheon, Korea, in 2014.
