The Anonymous Widower

Doha’s Disgrace

The World Athletics Championships in Doha is being ruined by the lack of crowds.

It should also be remembered that this may be partly due to the political situation between Qatar and its neighbours, which mean there are no flights, to allow those in the Emirates to come over to watch the action.

Those who decided to give Doha these championships, should hang their heads in shame and open their affairs to Fraud Squads around the world.

Will we be seeing empty stadiums at the ridiculous World Cup in Qatar?

Some of the athletes seem to have been affected by the heat and withdrawn from events, so will we see some footballers decide not to go to the World Cup?

  1. Awful to see womens 100m sprint medallists run lap-of-honour around track in almost empty stadium at last nights athletics world championships.
    Would have been nice for a few people to see such high quality sport live.

    • My father was a big sports fan. I can remember him telling me about Chris Brasher’s gold medal in Melbourne in 1956. He also got me out of bed to see Derek Ibbotson break the Mile world record. I can also remember myself watching Bruce Tulloh in Belgrade on a black-and-white TV.
