Qatar Swimming Association started its preparations to host the 28th Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) Aquatics Championships, which will be held from August 19-22 at Hamad Aquatics Centre.
In this context, the championship organizing committee held a meeting headed by Secretary-General of Qatar Swimming Association Talal Al Darwish, in the presence of board members and heads of committees working on the championship, to discuss the preparations and arrangements for the event.
The 28th GCC Aquatics Championships was scheduled to take place last year 2020 before the GCC Swimming organizing committee decided to move the championship to this year due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
The 27th GCC Aquatics Championships was held in Kuwait in 2019, where the Qatari team won first place in the age groups for the fourth time in a row after winning 34 medals, including 17 gold medals, 10 silver medals and 7 bronze medals.
It is worth noting that Qatar Swimming Association will also organize this year the 5th leg of the FINA Swimming World Cup 2021 in the 25-meter track from Oct. 21-23.
