Qatar prepares to host world’s largest para-athletic tournament

More than 1,000 athletes with special needs will gather in Doha next month to take part in what will be the world’s biggest single para-sport event, organizers have said.

The International Paralympics Committee (IPC) Athletics World Championships will be held for the first time in the Middle East at Qatar Sports Club from Oct. 21-31, during which 1,400 sportsmen and women from 100 countries will compete for the top titles.

Among those in attendance will be paralympic champions, defending world champions and world-record holders, who will also compete to qualify for the 2016 Paralympic Games in Rio.
