ABU AWAD BOOKS PARALYMPICS TICKET
Table Tennis veteran Khitam Abu Awad has qualified to the Tokyo 2020 Paralympic Games by winning silver medal at the Netherlands International Table Tennis Championship.
Abu Awad qualified by reaching the final, and despite her defeat she becomes the first Jordanian to book a spot to Japan next summer.
“I’m so happy,” she said. “It’s so great to book my place early so I can prepare properly and hopefully win a medal for Jordan.”
Unfortunately, teammates Osamah Abu Jam’ and Fatine Olimat missed out in their categories.
