Witness Qatar’s journey in the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games

By QLSports

After months of uncertainties due to the COVID 19 pandemic, which also necessitated the postponement by one year, the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games finally got underway today with a spectacular opening ceremony inside the ultra-modern Olympic Stadium in Tokyo.

A total of 15 athletes - Mutaz Essa Barshim (Men's high jump), Abubaker Haydar Abdalla (Men's 800m), Femi Ogunode (Men's 100m), Adam Ali Musab (Men's 1500m), Abdirahman Saeed Hassan (Men's 1500m), Abderrahman Samba (Men's 400m hurdles), Bashair Obaid Al Manwari (Women's 100m), Ashraf Amgad El Seify (Men's hammer throw), Cherif Younousse and Ahmed Tijan (beach handball), Fares Ibrahim (weightlifting), Tala Abujbara (rowing), Ayoub Elidrissi (judo), Abdulaziz Al Obaidly (Swimming), Mohammed Al Ramaihi (shooting) and Nada Arakji (Swimming) - are representing Qatar at the quadrennial Summer Games.

It was all glitz and glamour as Team Qatar filed out to the limited onlookers during the official parade. Tala Abujbara, who had earlier competed in the qualifying round of the women's single scull event of rowing, and Mohammed Al Ramaihi were flagbearers for Qatar, which is making its 10th successive appearance at the Olympics.

Qatar will be hoping to win its first gold and add to its five medal hauls at this event.
