Aspire Park, Qatar

Most gymnasts here have explored the world’s largest indoor sports complex. Our venue.

They’ve walked past the impressive Torch Doha hotel over to the air conditioned luxury mall.

But the rest of  Aspire Park is huge and beautiful too. An oasis of greenery and water.

I ran the entire thing last night. It took some time.

Families come at night when it’s cooler. Cycling is restricted to one big loop, the rest of the trails dedicated to walking and running.

Why did a small nation build such an amazing sports complex? They bid for the 2016, 2020 and 2024 Olympics. And will keep bidding into the future.
