Ambitious Jordan is sending its biggest ever delegation to an Asian Indoor and Martial Arts Games when Ashgabat hosts the 5th edition from September 17-27.
Looking to build on its excellent recent showings at major multi-sport events, Jordan will send more than 100 athletes to compete in 13 sports including 3x3 Basketball, Ju Jitsu, Wrestling, Taekwondo, Billiards and Snooker, Muaythai, Weightlifting, Indoor Athletics, Kickboxing, Swimming, Futsal, Chess and eSport.
“It’s the biggest delegation Jordan has ever sent to an Asian Indoor and Martial Arts Games, because we want to give as many athletes as possible the chance to compete on an Asian level,” said JOC Secretary General, Nasser Majali.
“Events like these help us to evaluate the levels of our athletes compared to the rest of Asia and enable us to prepare our long term plans as we build up towards events like the Asian Games and Olympics.”
The delegation will be headed by JOC Vice President Dr. Khalid Atyat as Chef de Mission.
