Qatar are drawn into Group B with Brazil, Uruguay and Australia in beach handball at the multi-sport World Games, to be held in Wroclaw, Poland, from July 20 to 30.
Croatia, Hungary, Egypt and the hosts form Group A. The top two teams from each group will qualify for the semifinal.
Qatar are in good form and had recently retained the Asian title in Pattaya, Thailand, to ensure a berth for the 2018 World Championship, to be held in Sochi, Russia.
Meanwhile, Qatar’s youth national team left for Spain for a fortnight-long training camp.
The camp is a part of the team’s preparations for the World Junior Championship beginning in Algeria on July 2. dsp
