|President||Joaan bin Hamad|
|Secretary General||Thani Al-Kuwari|
Until the 2012 Summer Olympics in London, Qatar was one of three counties that had never had a female competitor at the Olympic games. Qatar eventually sent four women, in swimming (Nada Arkaji), athletics (Noor Hussain Al-Malki), table tennis (Aya Majdi) and shooting (Bahiya Al-Hamad). Bahiya al-Hamad was also set to carry the Qatari flag at the opening ceremony, in what she said was a "truly historic moment".
