Aug 24, 2015
Jordan athletes were among the stars of the show at the New Think Festival which was held in Al Hussein Park on Saturday and Sunday.
The Jordan Olympic Committee was invited to participate by the Royal Health Awareness Society and athletes showed their support by speaking to hundreds of participants about the benefits of sport in leading a healthy lifestyle.
On Saturday evening, World Jiu Jitsu Champion Malek Hariri and 17-year-old swimmer Khader Baqleh, who has made the B qualifying time for the Rio Olympics, spoke to the crowd. They were followed on Sunday by World Champion powerlifter Mu’taz Al Juneidi and two-time Arab taekwondo champion Farah Asa’ad.
The New Think Festival is held annually for organisations to engage with the minds of Jordan’s youth.
