The Jordan Olympic Committee has launched a new process for deciding which sportsmen and women will be named Black Iris Sports Awards winners for 2014..
The Jordan Olympic Committee is the umbrella organisation responsible for managing, developing and promoting sport in Jordan. Our vision is for sport to play a fundamental role in the lives of all Jordanians and I extend a warm welcome to our official web site.
Balqees Al Qudah has become a local fencing hero after winning gold, silver and bronze in the 2013 West Asian Championships, and gold in the Qatar Championship earlier this year, and now she has her hopes on making an impact at the Youth Olympics in Nanjing, China from August 11.
