World Games silver medallist Lama Qubbaj has declared that there is still plenty left in the tank after being recognised for her achievement by the Jordan Olympic Committee (JOC).
The JOC has a strategy of recognising international achievements and the 29 year old was guest of honour at their headquarters where she was congratulated by Secretary General Nasser Majali.
Qubbaj became the first Jordanian sportswomen to win a medal in the history of the World Games last month, which include sports and disciplines not on the Olympic programme.
She is currently gearing up for the 5th Asian Indoor and Martial Arts Games in Turkmenistan where she believes more glory can come Jordan’s way.
“I am determined to keep doing well for my country and can’t wait to compete in Ashgabat,” she said.
On behalf of the sporting community, Majali praised her achievement and also recognised the role played by her long-time coach Sami Al Jamal.
