Commenting on the occasion, President of Qatar Olympic Committee and Doha 2030 H.E. Sheikh Joaan bin Hamad Al-Thani said that Doha is one of the richest capitals in the world when it comes to sports facilities, given its preparation for the World Cup 2022. His Excellency added that the modern transport system is part of the heritage left by the Doha 2006 games. His Excellency noted that the focus for the next 10 will be on developing Asian sports by working with the Olympic Council in Asia and with other national Olympic committees on the continent.

Doha may bid for 2030 Asian Games

Doha is considering a bid for the 2030 Asian Games but has not formally begun the process yet, a Qatar Olympic Committee (QOC) official told the local English language newspaper Gulf Times yesterday.

“Since 1991 we have hosted some of the sporting world’s biggest events including the Asian Games in 2006 and the athletics world championships currently underway in Doha. Qatar will be hosting the 2022 football World Cup,” he said.

He said Doha is thinking seriously about the 2030 Asian Games but nothing has officially happened yet. “Doha is not yet an applicant city.”

The QOC official, who preferred to stay anonymous, said a firmer decision would likely be made in the coming months.

Doha successfully hosted the 2006 Asian Games officially known as the XV Asiad from December 1 to 15, 2006 with 424 events in 39 sports featured in the games.

21 competition venues were used for the Games including the newly constructed Aspire indoor sports complex.

Trampoline discipline of gymnastics and the sports of chess and triathlon made their debut at the event.

Doha was the first city in its region and only the second in West Asia, following Tehran in 1974 to host the games. It was the first time that all 45 member nations of the Olympic Council of Asia took part in this event.

The final medal tally was led by China followed by South Korea and Japan with host Qatar in ninth place. Tajikistan, Jordan and United Arab Emirates won their first-ever Asian Games gold medals.

7 world and 23 Asian records were broken during the games, while South Korean swimmer Park Tae-hwan was announced as the most valuable player.

The opening and closing ceremonies of the Games were held at Khalifa International Stadium. Doha then passed on the torch to Guangzhou, Guangdong, China for hosting the 2010 Asian Games.
