In the occasion of the National Sport Day, “Images and Memories” exhibition, by the Qatari artist Sultan Jassim Al Jassim was inaugurated at the Cultural Village Foundation-Katara on Sunday on the presence of the Katara Deputy General Manager for Operations Ahmad Al Sayed.

Over 30 photos that depict the lives of Qatari athletes since the 60s of the last century, were displayed in images and memories exhibition which will continue till the end of this month.

Speaking on the occasion, Sultan Jassim Al Jassim said:

Undoubtedly, the display of some very rare images on the field of sport in our country is an illustration of an overall renaissance witnessed by our country in all fields. Similar images that go back to the 60s of last century indicate the great importance the people of Qatar had always given to sport. The history of sports in the State of Qatar and the accomplished progress in this field are vividly depicted in this exhibition.

The Qatari artist Sultan Jassim Al Jassim also tends to organise images and memories exhibition at the GCC countries in bid to promote the Qatari sport.
