Speaking about Doha’s hosting of the World Championships, His Excellency Dr Thani Abdulrahman Al Kuwari, President of the Local Organising Committee and Secretary General of the Qatar Olympic Committee says:
“The motto of the Doha 2015 IPC Athletics World Championships is ‘Beyond Incredible’. We want to use the World Championships to show the incredible stories behind some of the athletes that are competing in order to raise awareness of para-sport and people with a disability.
“We want to help break down barriers and change perceptions. We are excited to welcome the world best para-athletes to Doha and hope everyone will join us to witness what promises to be a truly exhilarating competition,” he adds.
Over 1,400 athletes from 100 countries around the world will be competing in the world’s biggest single para-sport event. Paralympic Champions, defending World Champions and world-record holders will be competing as well as battling to qualify for the Rio 2016 Paralympic Games.
