Sep 06, 2016
Jordan’s weightlifters have enjoyed some superb end of summer form with Rula Khaled in particular looking in top shape.
The +75kg lifter won the Arab Championship and also picked up silvers in the Islamic Solidarity Championship and Afro-Asian Championships of late.
But she has not been the only one in the medals.
There were Arab medals for Hamzeh Al Ajrami (bronze - juniors, youth and men 50kg), Waleed Al Awadat (silver – juniors 56kg), Sara Abu Shaweesh (bronze – female juniors and youth 58kg) and Lina Awad (bronze - women +75kg).
Also at the Islamic Solidarity Championship Al Ajrami took bronze in the juniors, youth and men 50kg weight.
