Her Excellency Sheikha Hind bint Hamad Al Thani, Vice Chairperson and CEO of Qatar Foundation, and His Excellency Sheikh Joaan bin Hamad Al Thani, President of the Qatar Olympic Committee, attended the sport-themed event at the Education City part of the relay, which saw the Qatari flag carried by athletes, students, and members of the public.
