The Aspire Dome in Doha, Qatar, proposed site of the the 2018 World Gymnastics Championships.

The International Gymnastics Federation has expressed confidence that the the 2018 World Gymnastics Championships will be in Doha, Qatar. Qatar is the only nation that bid to host the world championships, but the FIG has not yet officially approved the bid. The announcement is expected to come in May. The Aspire Arena in Doha, the site of an annual FIG World Cup event since 2008, is the proposed facility for the championships. The Aspire Arena also has hosted several Asian gymnastics competitions, including the 2006 Asian Games.

"As the pioneer for several gymnastics disciplines in the Gulf region, Qatar Gymnastics has also shown efforts to promote women's sports participation in the country," FIG President Bruno Grandi said. "With the experience of having organised several World Cups, we believe the country is now ready to host a World Championships." Click here to read more.
