Those in the know in track and field will know that Qatar has for many, many years been developing world-class sporting facilities, tournaments, and bringing in world-class coaches.
The Aspire Academy has EVERYTHING you could think of and if they do not have it, they will buy it.
Once you have the facilities and coaches in place all you need are athletes willing to be coached and exposure to quality competition on a consistent basis.
It is why many countries and coaches who want their athletes to continue but lack either the facilities or competition send their charges to the NCAA.
This is a win-win-win for all. Think about it. NCAA gets better competition, the school gets a stud/studette, the stud/studette get an education and access to decent facilities and world-class competition.
Just this week Kim Collins was giving a seminar on sprinting at Aspire Academy. How often do high school coaches outside of the USA have current and active world-class track and field athletes breaking-down technique and mental requirements of their chosen sport, in my corner of the world - never.
The days of total domination in events or sports are in, my opinion almost over, (except USA 4X4 - the depth is ridiculous), these days everyone brings it. Between Youtube, sports teams and federations growing their global brand but touring and broadcasting. A kid in Africa can see the latest defensive schemes that the Dutch AJAX Academy players are learning. Brazilian rugby players can see what the All Blacks practice looks like and adopt those modalities into their programming.
Also a lot of good and great coaches passed over in their own countries can and do make a name for themselves in others by spreading their wings and leaving their home-countries. Cuban boxing coaches, Jamaican sprint coaches, Brazilian BJJ players, etc.
Brain-drain, technological transfers, and the like, will only continue to add parity or better competition.
