Despite being one of just two Arab nations competing, Jordan has won four medals at an event used as a trial run for the Special Olympics World Winter Games taking place in Austria next year.
The medals came in the speed skating events held at the Eishalle Liebenau in Graz, with Rima Abu Zahra winning gold in both the 111m and 222m women’s events while Isra’ Al Khateeb took gold in the 111m junior category and silver in 222m.
The four-day test event attracted more than 1,000 athletes from 21 countries, including Jordan and Qatar, and provided a good test ahead of the World Winter Games to be held there from March 14-25, 2017.
