With the Olympic Games less than three weeks away, Jordan has celebrated Olympic Day by bringing the sporting family together and promoting the values of sport among the Kingdom’s young.
Under the patronage of its President, His Royal Highness Prince Feisal Al Hussein, the Jordan Olympic Committee organised a day of activity in Al Hussein Youth City using its children’s ambassador ‘Nash’ as the star of the show.
Hundreds of people took part in a symbolic walk before crowds gathered at the Sports Palace to participate in a variety of fun activity promoting the values of sport.
Among the VIP’s joining HRH Prince Feisal was His Excellency Rami Wreikat, the Minister of Youth.
"The JOC is the leading sports organisation in Jordan so it is important for us to bring the Kingdom’s sporting family together to celebrate this annual day along with National Olympic Committees across the world,” said Lana Al Jaghbeer, JOC Secretary General.
"The Olympic Day activity is centred around the three basic elements of Move, Learn and Discover and we have used Nash to communicate this message to the youngsters here today."
JOC partners backaldrin, Royal Health Awareness Society and Smoke Free Jordan supported the day alongside special guests, The Children’s Museum.
Activity was also organised by Jordan’s national sports federations as well as the JOC Knowledge, Training and Education Department.
