I have been to many sports academies and institutions all over the world, but Aspire is the best of them all. Congratulations to the leadership of Qatar, the Qatar Olympic Committee and to Aspire for creating an environment where young athletes can develop into champions that can succeed on a sporting level and in life. Combining education excellence and sports finesse is essential to build successful athletes and citizens and here at Aspire you have demonstrated this is possible and once again l congratulate Qatar and its people."
