Team Qatar and youth athletes from across multiple Asian Games sports, today joined members of the OCA Evaluation Committee for the final day of the Doha 2030 Asian Games Bid Committee visit.
Established Olympians through to talented young athletes, including Amal Mohammed (basketball), Afaf Alqarni (boxing), Hannah Albadr (handball), Abdulaziz Mohammed (athletics), Maha falamarzi (table tennis) and Nada Mohammed Wafa (swimming), were among those to join the tour of the National Museum of Qatar.
On the tour, the athletes demonstrated their passion for sport and explained the important role sport plays in their daily lives and the lives of people across Qatar. Since first hosting the Asian Games in 2006, sport in the country has progressed significantly and has contributed to positive social change.
Olympic swimmer at the London 2012 and Rio 2016 Olympic Games, Nada Mohammed Wafa said:
“It was our honour to join the OCA Evaluation Committee on their tour today and discuss our support for Doha 2030.
“As athletes we understand the role we play in inspiring young girls and boys around the country. Sport, and particularly female sport, has grown dramatically in Qatar in recent years and is now stronger than ever. We have so many talented young athletes who have been inspired by previous generations and they themselves are now inspiring others to push themselves and reimagine the future for our country. Hosting the Asian Games in Doha in 2030, would only strengthen this process. But more than that, Doha 2030 would ensure that the Games inspires new generations throughout Asia and supports the development of Asian sport over the next 10 years and beyond.”
