ANOC says delegates from 206 countries are invited to Qatar for one week, first attending the Oct. 12-16 games in 14 sports. San Diego organizers withdrew last month citing financial issues. Doha will then host ANOC's meeting and awards ceremony on Oct. 17-18.
ANOC is led by Sheikh Ahmad of Kuwait, who stepped aside from the organization and his International Olympic Committee work after being indicted in a forgery case in Geneva. Last November in Tokyo, ANOC postponed its presidential election while the sheikh fights the case. He denies any wrongdoing.
