(MENAFN - The Peninsula) Golden boy of Qatar athletics Mutaz Essa Barshim has firmly set his sights on clinching a gold medal at the 2016 Olympic Games and cautioned young athletes not to take the doping route to earn glory in track and field.

The 22-year-old long jumper, bronze medal winner at the London Games, said he is working on a plan to clinch gold at the Rio de Janeiro Games.

"I am hungry for success and more medals. Winning the bronze medal at the London Olympics in 2012 has been the high point of my sporting career so far. But I want to win more medals at the Olympics, hopefully I will be on the podium again and achieve better results and win gold at the next Olympics in Brazil," Barshim said while speaking on the concluding day of the two-day symposium organised by Anti-Doping Lab Qatar (ADLQ).

Elaborating on his sporting achievements Brashim added: "Winning the first place at the 2014 IAAF World Indoor Championships in Poland has been one of the great moments and also winning the gold at the 2010 World Junior Championships in Canada, besides the Asian titles, two of which were indoor's and an equal number outdoors, are some of the high points of my career so far."
