There was an air of optimism and excitement when Team Jordan’s Tokyo 2020 delegation met at the Olympic Village on Wednesday to discuss their final preparations.
The event will get underway on Friday, and many of Jordan’s 14-strong team have arrived in Japan with their coaches and support teams ahead of the Opening Ceremony.
The organisers have put the safety and well-being of all involved as a priority and the latest measures were shared by Dr. Khaled Zidan, Jordan’s medical lead.
Secretary General of the Jordan Olympic Committee, Nasser Majali, stressed the importance of continuing to adhere fully to the health procedures with the competitions fast approaching, and the need to exercise caution at all times.
Three-time Olympian Nadin Dawani is Team Jordan’s Chef de Mission and brought the delegation up-to-date with the arrangements for Friday’s Opening Ceremony, which will be held behind closed doors at the Olympic Stadium.
Jordan will be the 192nd nation to enter the stadium out of the 206 participating countries, based on the Japanese alphabet. Greece, as per tradition as the birthplace of the modern Olympics, will enter first while Japan, the host country, will be the last to enter.
