Amman, Jordan: The General Assembly for the Jordan Olympic Committee (JOC) has elected HRH Prince Feisal Al Hussein to serve another four-year term as its President, following an election held at Al Hussein Youth City.
HRH Prince Feisal was first elected as the JOC President in 2003 and has overseen a huge transformation in the way sport is managed in the Kingdom.
He became an International Olympic Committee Member in 2010.
The Prince will be joined by 17 members on the new Board which is made up of distinguished members, representatives from Olympic and non-Olympic sports and two former Olympic athletes.
Three females will serve, including Prince Feisal’s daughter, HRH Princess Ayah Al Feisal who presides over the Jordan Volleyball Federation.
As the leading organisation for sport in Jordan, the JOC launched a dynamic and far reaching first national sporting strategy earlier this year with the aim of raising the level of the sector as a whole.
Jordanian performances have been improving on the international stage with record medal hauls achieved at the Asian Beach Games and Islamic Solidarity Games since the country achieved its first ever Olympic medal through Ahmad Abu Ghaush’s historic taekwondo gold in Rio de Janeiro last summer.
