The Aquatic Centre at Qatar University (QU)’s Sports Activities Department has launched an underwater version of the iconic ‘Tamim Al Majd’ billboard.
The billboard was established in the swimming pool at QU Male Water Sports Complex, in collaboration with QU Diving Club, Aspire Academy, Civil Defence, Coast and Borders Security Department, Elite Dive Academy, Freediving Association, Hamad Aquatic Centre, Internal Security Force (Lekhwiya) and Poseidon Dive Centre. 
QU members will be able to access the underwater ‘Tamim Al Majd’ billboard until August 13. Professional divers will be on hand to assist them. 
QU vice-president for Student Affairs Dr Khalid al-Khanji said, “This initiative reflects our role and social responsibility as a national university that actively interacts with the current circumstances. This new billboard will provide QU members with the opportunity to express their appreciation and loyalty to Qatar. It also reflects the country’s social solidity and unity during the current situation.”



The initiative involves several organisations.

Manager of Sports and Recreation Activities Asmaa al-Naemi said, “We, at the Sports Activities Department, thought of a creative way to express our love to our beloved country and its wise leadership. We came up with the idea of launching an underwater ‘Tamim Al Majd’ billboard to voice our belonging and support to His Highness the Emir and to Qatar. All QU members are encouraged to express their sincere appreciation and gratitude to our generous country.”
QU Diving Club head and third-year student (QU College of Business and Economics) Mohamed al-Bourshid noted, “This initiative reflects our solidarity and loyalty during the current situation in Qatar. I would like to express my gratitude to QU administration for welcoming and implementing the underwater billboard idea. I would also like to thank all the institutions that supported and participated in this event.” 
Sport Science Programme student (QU College of Arts and Sciences) Bahaa Mohamed added, “The underwater billboard reflects QU support to the country’s wise leadership. I came here to express my appreciation and gratitude to the country that raised and educated me.” (Source)
