Jordan’s Olympic Boxer Hussein Ishaish has overcome many things to make it to the top of his chosen sport, so he wasn’t going to let Covid-19 prevent him from inspiring the next generation of Jordanians. Ishaish qualified for his second Olympics last month (which will now take place in Tokyo next year) and it follows on from his impressive debut four years ago in Rio de Janeiro when he reached the quarter-final. And now he has spoken about his career with students from the Modern English School over an e-conference. As part of an initiative set up by the Education Department at the Jordan Olympic Committee to excite school kids about sport, Ishaish talked about his experiences of being the Kingdom’s top boxer and fighting on the international stage. The students asked a number of questions and he encouraged them to chase their dreams and not to let quarantine stop them from practicing sport and keeping healthy. Education Department Manager, Sawsan Qadoumi, said: “This is an important project to connect the children with Jordan’s athletes and to inspire them for the future.”
