Double Olympic medalist Mo Farah to make Doha debut on May 15
World champion runner Mo Farah will make his first-ever visit to Qatar when he competes in the Doha Diamond League on May 15, organizers have confirmed.
The British athlete will be one of the first athletes in the 14-meeting International Association of Athletics Federation’s Diamond League campaign when he competes in the 3,000 meter running event at the 15,000-seater Suhaim bin Hamad Stadium, Qatar Sports Club’s home ground in Dafna/West Bay.
In a statement about his upcoming visit, Farah said:
“I’ve heard so many great things about the track, the crowd and the competition in Doha.
There are always very strong fields in the distances so this will be a great early season test on the track for me. I’m looking forward to a good performance.”
