QATAR Rugby Federation (QRF) President Yousef Jeham Al Kuwari is the man responsible for reinvigorating the sport in the country. Though the QRF was formed only last year, Al Kuwari, a former American football player with semi-professional side Colorado Cougars during his college days in the US, gave the sport a boost with his proactive ways.
The QRF has hosted a couple of international competitions while Qatar’s victory at the Asian Championship Division 3 in April was another major achievement.
What other sports do you follow?
I like football very much. I follow the English Premier League, Spanish League, Italian League and Qatar Stars League (QSL).
Your favourite football club…
