More than 1,000 banners and billboards in Doha, part of an advertising campaign in English and Arabic to raise awareness of Doha’s bid for the 2016 Summer Olympic Games, will feature four Qatari children, all of whom take part in multi-sports activities in the Aspire Academy programs.

Alongside the four children on the billboards and banners is the Qatari international archer Nada Zeidan.

The banners are also promoting the launch event of Doha’s 2016 bid which will take place on the Corniche Oct. 25.

Hassan Ali Bin Ali, Chairman of the Doha 2016 bid committee said, “these children are our sports stars of the future. If Doha is honoured to host the Olympic and Paralympic Games in 2016 it is children like these who will be competing against the rest of the world.

“It is for children like these that we have built our vision of the Games. Our bid will be focused on our shared future – the world’s youth – particularly those disadvantaged either economically or through disability. It will engage and inspire them so that Arab youth better understand the wider world and the youth of the rest of the world gain a true picture of Arab culture and hospitality”.
