Dr. Jacques Rogge Attends IWF Centennial Celebration

Doha, Qatar - IOC President Dr. Jacques Rogge attended the IWF Centennial Celebration last night.

The celebration of the 100th anniversary of weightlifting was a gala affair at the Doha Sheraton Hotel and the star-studded guest list was headed by International Olympic Committee President Dr. Jacques Rogge.

Staged in the hotel's lagoon area, the festivities included booths featuring local culture in everything from traditional food and clothing to the falcons used for hunting - and the dinner itself was lavish. A laser light show and fireworks punctuated the glamorous event and it was a tremendous way to close the first century of weightlifting and welcome the next one.
