Olympic and world high jump champion Mutaz Barshim will lead Qatar’s bid for glory at the 2022 World Athletics Championships taking place in Oregon, US, from July 14-24.

The 31-year-old memorably took the gold medal at the Tokyo Olympics, where he shared first place with Italian jumper Gianmarco Tamberi.

His only participation since came in May at the Diamond League 2022 season-opening round in Doha, where he finished second with a jump of 2.30 m behind South Korean Woo Sanghyeok, who managed 2.33 m.
