WATCH: Welcome to Qatar - learn about Aspire Academy for Sports Excellence
Founded in 2004, the Aspire Academy for Sports Excellence is unlike anything you've ever seen before. It's hosted major events like the 2006 Doha Asian Games and the 2010 IAAF Indoor Athletics World Championships, among others.
The goal of the institution is to find and develop Qatar's best future athletes.
The academy admits students after they pass a number of tests. They are then exposed to a professional training schedule at some of the best sports facilities in the world.
Aspire strikes a balance between sports and academics for its students, and also carefully monitors their nutrition and performance.
Part of the result is that many of Qatar's star athletes today are graduates of Aspire Academy.
Fun fact: Aspire is home to the largest indoor dome in the world!
