Qatar is keen on on hosting the 2032 Olympic and Paralympic Games. The gas-rich Persian Gulf nation has expressed an interest in hosting the world’s biggest sporting events in a letter to the International Olympic Committee. Qatar is turning its focus to bringing the Summer Games to the Middle East for the first time as it prepares to host the region’s first World Cup in 2022. A bid for the Olympics comes as Qatar continues to face corruption allegations over how it won the rights to host the World Cup in a FIFA vote in December 2010.
