HAMMAD WILL GO IT ALONE
Jun 30, 2018
Abdullah Hammad’s teammates couldn’t quite follow his lead by qualifying to the Youth Olympics Games in Croatia at the weekend.
Hammad won silver and will represent Jordan in Buenos Aires later this year, but despite some strong performances, his teammates Yazan Al Wher, Ali Esmeal, Nirmeen Turaish and Diana Dada all missed out.
The qualifying tournament welcomed 300 fighters from 84 countries and Hammad will now compete alongside a number of other Jordanians who have qualified including Rama Abu Al Rub, Natali Al Humaidi and Zeid Mustafa (all Taekwondo), Sara Al Armouti (Equestrian) and the 3x3 Basketball team.
The Games take place from October 6-18.
