Gulf Times Sport - - SPORT - By Sports Re­porter

The Or­ga­niz­ing Com­mit­tee for the 48th FIG Artis­tic Gym­nas­tics World Cham­pi­onships Doha 2018, along with Aspetar, the world’s lead­ing spe­cialised or­thopaedic and sports medicine hos­pi­tal, held a sem­i­nar at As­pire on Thurs­day fo­cus­ing on the first such gym­nas­tics event to be held the Mid­dle East.

Aspetar shall be pro­vid­ing all med­i­cal care and sports ser­vices not only to the ath­letes be­fore and dur­ing the cham­pi­onships, to be held from Oc­to­ber 25 to Novem­ber 3, but also to the pub­lic at­tend­ing the mega sports event.

The best of Aspetar’s med­i­cal staff will be of­fer­ing their ser­vices for the cham­pi­onship with 50 of world’s lead­ing sports medicine prac­ti­tion­ers avail­able to at­tend to all in­juries, ur­gent cases and emer­gen­cies, if any.

The part­ner­ship be­tween Aspetar Hos­pi­tal and the Or­gan­is­ing Com­mit­tee of the World Gym­nas­tics is com­mit­ted in its mis­sion to help ath­letes com­pete to their full po­ten­tial and reach the high­est lev­els of per­for­mance dur­ing the cham­pi­onships.

The cham­pi­onships will show­case Aspetar’s lead­ing role in pro­tect­ing lo­cal, re­gional and in­ter­na­tional play­ers from all sports-based in­juries given the wealth of knowl­edge and in­ter­na­tional ex­pe­ri­ence the hos­pi­tal has gained through ma­jor tour­na­ments hosted by Qatar such as the World Hand­ball and World Box­ing Cham­pi­onships in 2015, the World Cy­cling Cham­pi­onships in 2016 and other ma­jor sport­ing events.

Mean­while, to­day there will be a new pro­mo­tional event for World Gym­nas­tics at the Mall of Qatar fol­low­ing the suc­cess of an ear­lier show which saw the pub­lic de­mand­ing a re­peat.

The or­gan­is­ers have an­nounced many prizes and free tick­ets for spec­ta­tors at­tend­ing the world gym­nas­tics cham­pi­onships at the As­pire Dome.
