Jordan swimming has booked its second spot at the Rio Olympic Games with an official being selected for the first time ever to referee next year.
Earlier this summer, Jordan celebrated young Khader Baqleh securing his place after reaching the B-qualification time in the 100m freestyle at the World Championships.
And last night the Federation had more reason to celebrate after Marwan Dakory was selected to be a technical official for Rio, the first time a Jordanian has been invited to do so by FINA, swimming’s world governing body.
“We are delighted for Marwan,” said JSF Secretary General Ibrahim Naddeh. “He has served swimming since 1985 so this is deserved recognition for all his hard work.”
