Red Bull celebrated high-jump world champion Mutaz Barshim and his wonderous achievements at a reception held on October 13 at Japanese restaurant MEGU in The Pearl-Qatar.

Mutaz’s fellow athletes and friends, key media representatives and some of Qatar’s most significant opinion leaders attended the reception. 

The Red Bull Track & Field athlete took his career to new heights at the 2019 IAAF World Athletics Championships on October 4th at the Khalifa International Stadium.

Barshim cleared a height of 2.37m in men's high jump, defending his world title.

He also made history by becoming the first high-jump athlete to win two World Championships consecutively.

The Qatari champion endured a year-long recovery away from competition, after his career threatening injury in July 2018.

Determined to make his comeback, the high jump world champion set his sights on the World Championships in 2019, where he most recently put on an outstanding performance in front of his home crowd to earn a standing ovation from a stadium full of royals, family, friends, fans, and supporters.

“I’m really happy that we achieved the target. The win in Doha was a dream come true and it’s the highlight of my career so far. Seeing my whole country coming together to support me was beyond spectacular,” said Barshim.

“Now it’s time to recover and prepare for the upcoming milestones and the Olympic Season,” he added.

Mutaz Barshim is now looking forward to an eventful season in 2020.

With the World Indoor Championship and Tokyo Olympics coming up, Barshim is preparing for a competitive year that suggests new milestones for Qatar’s Track & Field star.
