Harvey to Represent Bermuda at World Swimming Championships

One of the most important competitions at the beginning of the year will be this major aquatic event in Doha. As usual, the Qatari capital doesn't hold back and will offer three impressive competition and training venues.

Doha, the capital of Qatar, will host three major facilities with all the necessary amenities for the premier water sports event. In recent years, Doha has built a reputation for hosting major events, including the memorable 2022 FIFA World Cup, Formula 1, Moto GP, major tennis and golf tournaments, and the upcoming 2027 World Basketball Championships.

As you would expect from a country with one of the highest per capita GDPs in the world, no expense is spared when it comes to event infrastructure, whether to provide comfort for the athletes or to impress visitors and fans watching on television.

The first-ever World Swimming Championships in the Middle East will take place in the capital of Qatar from February, 2nd – 18th, 2024, with over 2,500 elite athletes from more than 190 countries around the world including Bermuda competing.

Bermuda will be represented by Emma Harvey.

The Hamad Aquatic Centre is located just 200 meters from the Aspire Dome, allowing fans to move easily between the two impressive venues. It is the chosen venue for the diving competitions and will also host the WPO and NAR training sessions during the Doha 2024 Aquatics World Championships. It is an impressive facility designed to meet the needs of world-class aquatics, with a sustainable 50m pool and a deeper pool for the diving competitions.

The Hamad Aquatic Centre is an ultra-modern aquatic sports complex, built around a five-storey spectator area with a capacity for 4,500 spectators who will enjoy an unparalleled experience. The seating arrangement offers unobstructed views from all angles, allowing spectators to witness every twist, turn, and splash of the athletes.
