TRY AND TRY AGAIN: REUTERS' Regan Doherty reported that Qatar will bid to host the 2024 summer Olympics despite missing out on bids for the 2016 and 2020 Games. Qatar Olympic Committee General Secretary Saoud bin Abdulrahman al-Thani said, "We have tried it twice, and we will continue.

Qatar had proposed holding the 2020 Olympics in October to avoid the Gulf Arab state's searing summer heat (REUTERS, 6/24).
