Doha will host the 2019 IAAF championships and the 2022 FIFA World Cup. Now there is the possibility these are disasters. But if they aren't what do you think of the prospects for Doha for the next Olympics, 2032, 2036...

Agreed. Doha is already not proving to be the best of cities to work with in terms of planning, I do not think the IOC, especially in a time where for the past few bids, they were struggling to keep their heads afloat, even going as far to award 2024 and 2028 at once, will be awarding a Games to a "chance city" (I like to use the term to describe that cities that the IOC takes a chance on, like Atlanta, Beijing, Sochi, Rio, etc, some proving better than others) for a while. Just to ensure that the Olympics can be sustainable again and don't come with a looming fear of white elephants and economic hardship like Athens, Beijing, Sochi and Rio brought (again, some in some regards, some in all regards, some more than others). For example, if a city like Sydney, Munich, Barcelona, or London steps up, which are all previous cities with massive successes behind them, or even cities like Brisbane, Toronto and Madrid, cities whose country has had success and could also likely put on a successful Games, would step up, Doha stands little chance in my opinion.

So, all they have to do to is make everybody else drop out with that plague! :D
