Swimming in Qatar: Meet Doha's home team

In a desert country where the average high temperature in summer is 40-41 C (105-106 F), and the swimming facilities are exceptional enough to have attracted the 2014 FINA World Swimming Championships (25m) and the FINA World Championships 2023, it would be logical to think that Qatar's national pastime was swimming.

But it's not.

In fact, the team is so small that, for this weekend's World Cup in Doha, its roster was culled from a national talent pool of just 35 boys and men ranging in age from 10 to 17.
