Dolphin Energy Doha Dash

A 16-year-old Qatari girl who is considered among the country’s most promising young athletes will serve as ambassador for the Dolphin Energy Doha Dash alongside British Olympic gold medalist Dame Kelly Holmes, organizers have confirmed.

Mariam Farid has already achieved significant success as a member of Qatar’s national track and field team, representing the state in the 400m run and 400m hurdles at regional and international meetings, winning a silver medal in the West Asian Championships in Jordan and also in the GCC championships in Doha last year.

Now she said that she hopes her achievements will inspire other young people to sign up to take part in this annual run, as the first step to becoming more active.
