The current World Champion and second best high jumper of all-time, with a personal best of 2.43 metres, he won gold at the 2017 World Championships in London and at the 2019 World Championships in Doha.

Sheikh Mohamed bin Abdulla al-Thani said: “Ooredoo’s sponsorship of Mutaz Barshim is one of several initiatives from the company to encourage sports education and inspire more young people to take up a sport of their own, as part of our corporate social responsibility. To date, Mutaz has demonstrated through his career the positive values of fair play and sporting excellence.”

“From amateur, grass-roots sports to the highest standards of performance at national and international, Ooredoo aims to be there supporting our athletes,” he added.
