Superthin Waist Ann Ward America’s Next Top Model 2010 photos

Superthin Waist Ann Ward won America’s Next Top Model 2010. She stands almost a foot taller than the average American woman, but her waist is anything but ordinary. The 19-year-old, 6-foot, 2-inch blond from Dallas appears in the 15th season of the reality competition, premiering September 8. An adult’s hands can easily fit all the way around her waist, as judge Miss J. Alexander demonstrates in a trailer released from the show.

America's Next Top Model (often abbreviated as ANTM) is a reality television show in which a number of women compete for the title of America's Next Top Model and a chance to start their career in the modeling industry.

He spent 14 years in the Major Leagues, from 1960-74, mainly as the regular third baseman for the Chicago Cubs.

Khalifa International Stadium, home stadium of Qatar national football team World Cup 2022

Khalifa International Stadium (Arabic: ستاد خليفة الدولي‎) or also known as National Stadium is a multi-purpose stadium in Doha, Qatar as part of the Doha Sports City complex, which also includes Aspire Academy, Hamad Aquatic Centre, and the Aspire Tower. The stadium was originally opened in 1976, but was fully renovated and expanded in 2005 prior to the 2006 Asian Games in order to increase its capacity from 20,000 to 40,000. A roof has also been built on the Western side of the stadium, along with a large arch on the Eastern side which was used as a platform for the launch of fireworks during the 2006 Asian Games opening ceremony.

Before its renovation it was used mostly for football matches, but it includes facilities for many other sports. Since 1997 it hosts the annual athletics event Qatar Athletic Super Grand Prix, now as part of the IAAF Diamond League. It is currently the stadium of Qatar national football team.

The venue hosted an international friendly football match between Brazil and England on November 14, 2009 and the athletics of the 2009 ISF World School Games, held between December 8 - December 12, 2009.

Qatar national football team



The Qatar national football team is the national team of Qatar and is controlled by the Qatar Football Association. They have never reached the FIFA World Cup finals but are hosting the competition in 2022, have appeared in seven AFC Asian Cup tournaments, and will host the event in 2011.

Football was brought to Qatar in the 1940s and 50s by oil workers. Soon after the formation of the Qatar Football Association in 1970, the national team played its first match against Bahrain in the Gulf Cup. Qatar have only once progressed beyond the group stage in continental championships and have never represented Asia in a FIFA World Cup. However, they have won the Gulf Cup twice, in 1992 and 2004, both times as host, and qualified for the Asian Cup finals in 1980, 1984, 1988, 1996, 2000, 2004 and 2007, and as hosts for 2011.

Qatar reached the Asian Zone's final qualifying round for France 1998 when they beat China and Iran to enter the last match against Saudi Arabia needing just a point to gain an automatic qualifying place. However, they lost out as the Saudis went through 1–0.

They reached the final qualifying round again four years later, but were defeated by Bora Milutinovic's China team, who topped the section to progress to their first FIFA World Cup. Frenchman Philippe Troussier took the manager's job after Korea–Japan 2002, but was unsuccessful in both the 2004 Asian Cup and the qualifying campaign for Germany 2006.

Troussier was sacked after the World Cup qualifying campaign, and under Bosnian Dzemaluddin Musovic the team won the Gulf Cup in 2004 and the Asian Games gold in 2006. Musovic stepped down after Qatar took just two points from three matches in the AFC Asian Cup 2007. The job of coaching the team in qualifying for the 2010 FIFA World Cup fell to Uruguayan Jorge Fossati, who led the team throughout the first and second AFC rounds up to the third one. After leaving them at the top of their group in the third round with only two played matches, Fossati had to undergo surgery. Subsequently, the Qatar FA ended their cooperation with him, who supposedly needed too long to recover from surgery. Bruno Metsu was called up for the job, but Qatar failed to qualify after finishing fourth in their qualifying group. Qatar will host the 2022 FIFA World Cup
