Sheikh Joaan bin Hamad al-Thani, the president of Qatar Olympic Committee (QOC), appreciated the beIN network TV Channels for earning the rights to broadcast three upcoming Olympic Games.
He stressed that beIN network has great co-operation with the QOC and there is an active partnership between the organisations ever since its launch.
He pointed out that 38 athletes from Qatar participated in 2016 Rio Olympics in various competitions which included swimming, handball, weightlifting, high jump and equestrian, when Qatari Olympic champion Mutaz Barshim won silver medal in Qatar’s biggest participation in the Olympic Games.
He said that Qatar’s contingent would be bigger than the Rio Olympics in the next edition in 2020, which will be held in Tokyo, Japan.
Meanwhile, he revealed that an agreement was also recently signed between the QOC and IOC (International Olympic Committee), which would be announced in Lima, the capital of Peru.
