Olympian Khader Baqlah and rising star Amr Al Wir will launch Jordan’s campaign at the FINA World Swimming Championships in Guangzhou, South Korea on Sunday.
The event provides an opportunity for swimmers to make the Olympic qualifying times with Baqlah in particular keen to qualify early this time around after impressing in Rio de Janeiro in 2016.
Headed by Ghanem Makhamra as chef de mission, with Dr. Ali Al-Nawaiseh in charge of the coaching, Jordan will be represented by Olympic siblings Khader and Talita Baqlah as well as Amr Al Wir and Lydia Safadi.
