The Qatari capital has bid for the 2018 Artistic World Gymnastics Championships, a top official confirmed yesterday.
Ali Al Hitmi, President, Qatar Gymnastics Federation (QGF) said the Bid File was submitted two weeks ago.
The decision is expected to be announced in June this year.
“We are very confident of winning this bid,” Al Hitmi said. “We launched plans to submit our Bid File around three years ago.
“The feedback on our events at Aspire Academy from FIG (world governing body) officials and that from the gymnasts convinced us that we should bring the world’s best event to Doha,” Al Hitmi added.
If Doha’s bid is successful, then it will be the fourth top world event to come to the Middle East.
