The Advisory Council celebrated the National Sport Day yesterday with the participation of its Speaker HE Ahmed bin Abdullah bin Zaid al-Mahmoud.
This year’s celebration comes in light of the historic achievement accomplished by Qatar national football team by winning the 2019 Asian Cup, an event that gave the celebration of the Sport Day this year a special taste and an additional sense of the importance of sport, its role and its multiple benefits.
In remarks to journalists, HE al-Mahmoud said that the Sport Day, which was set by a decision of His Highness the Amir Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad al-Thani in 2011, affirms the importance of sports in the lives of individuals and communities.
He said that the Asian Cup victory gives this great sporting event a beautiful dimension that reflects the importance of sports and indicates that sport is no less important than other things for the communities as well.
The Speaker added that the Advisory Council is celebrating this wonderful occasion to remind the society that a healthy mind resides in a healthy body.
