DOHA: The 48th FIG Artistic World Championships Organising Committee recently made a presentation during the FIG Council Meeting in Istanbul, Turkey.

The team of officials led by tournament Chief Executive Officer Ali Ahmed Al Hitmi exuded confidence of a successful event.

“We’ve been preparing for this grand occasion for last couple of years. It’s in full swing now. The presentation was good and everybody seemed satisfied with our progress,” said Al Hitmi, who is also a member of FIG Executive Committee.

The Doha edition, which will be the first in the region, will be held from October 25 to November 3 at the Aspire Dome.

“Our delegation made a strong presentation that included Doha’s position as a top international sports destination,” added Al Hitmi, who is also Qatar Gymnastics Federation President.

The Qatari capital is the venue of one of the FIG World Cup Series editions, which has given it a pride of place among the elites.

“We will deliver a stunning Worlds and we look forward to a successful competition,” added Al Hitmi. “The various tournament committees are doing their best. We’ve now entered the final stages of our preparation to host the biggest gymnastics competition.”
