The Jordan Olympic Committee is providing solid support to the athletes that have been trying to reach this summer’s Olympic Games, and are rewarding those that manage to achieve their dream.
After Hussein Ishaiash qualified in boxing earlier this month, Ahmad Abu Ghaush became the latest athlete to be the guest of honour at the JOC to pick up a cheque recognizing his achievement in taekwondo.
The JOC is the leading sports organisation in the Kingdom and has worked closely with its national federations to identify, develop and then support the qualification campaigns of numerous athletes and teams.
He was welcomed to the home of Jordan sport by Lana Al Jaghbeer, JOC Secretary General, who praised the 20-year-old student’s efforts whose coach is also rewarded.\
"Here at the JOC we understand just how much dedication and hard work goes into qualifying for the Olympics so a big ‘congratulations’ to Ahmad and his support team for reaching Rio de Janeiro this summer,” said Lana. “We hope that both Ahmad and Hussein’s achievements and rewards will spur our other hopefuls on and we wish all of our athletes the best in their efforts over the coming weeks.”
There are still chances for more Jordanian athletes to qualify to Rio in swimming, triathlon, boxing and judo.
