Emblem, Muscat 2010



Designed by Saleem Sakhi, renowned Omani artist, the Muscat 2010 logo represents the relationship between the Omani people and the sea. The sail reflects the connection of Oman to the rest of Asia by hosting the shining sun in Muscat and projects a healthy future for Asian sport aided by a ship carrying it to international sporting destinations. The strong high waves provide the logo with solidity, vitality, sustainability and challenges and represent the athletes competing in the Games. The waves touch the attractive Omani beaches and give a local natural dimension to the logo.

We want to ensure all functional areas understand where the Venues directorate currently is with its plans and where we are heading”.


Venue Operations Manager for the Al-Musannah Sports City Venues Mr Muhammad Taufiq provided a clear breakdown of the locations where each of the 14 sports on the Muscat 2010 calendar will be held. He shared maps of the venues and described each of the locations.
