Jordan Olympic Committee expresses its deepest condolences to the family of Wajeeh Al Aboudi who passed away yesterday (Wednesday) at the age of 85 following a life dedicated to the sports movement in Jordan.
Al Aboudi will be remembered for winning Jordan’s first medal at the Pan Arab Games when he took bronze in the 1953 Alexandra Games in weightlifting. He went on to win four more Arab Games medals through his career.
For the past 25 years he worked at the Organisation of Sport and Youth Movement Pioneers since its inception.
He also served in the Jordan Weightlifting Federation as teams manager and was recognised for his service to sport by His Majesty King Abdullah II at the 1999 Olympic Day.
