Best wishes to our Jordanian athletes competing in Beijing this month: Zeina Shaban (table tennis), recipe Razan Fareed (swimming), diagnosis Anas Hamoudeh (swimming), treatment Khalil Hanahneh (athletics), Baraâ€™ Marwan (athletics), Nadeen Dwani (taekwondo) and Ibrahim Bisharat (equestrian).
Make us proud!
Best of luck!
It seems like there is a world of difference between participating in one hand and competing on the other hand, according to this Petra report
In past Olympics, Jordanian athletes were mainly concerned with participating and not in competing- &- only this year they decided to abandon the idea of participating only and move -on- into the competing phase. In this case I would say yeah go for it?
In some of these competitions there is no way we can win anything, like HAnahneh in the 200-meters, he’s a good runner but his best record is almost one second longer than any record needed to make it to the final race, and one second in 200-m race is a very very big number.
Same applies for swimming, it’s much easoer to predict they won’t qualify to the final competition because of their personal records.
On the other, in some competitions like taekwondo Dowani can do well, Zaina Sha’ban can also do well although her chances are not great.
I was reading your blog while watching the re-run of the opening ceremony.
And guess what, we have a Chinese man in our team 🙂
Good luck to them 🙂
(Btw, he’s Anas Hamadeh and not Anas Hamoudeh)
good luck for all of you
How fun it was to hear the kids cheer when we saw the Jordanian flag while watching last night! Our hosts marveled at the dresses and beauty of the Jordanian atheletes. Yay GO!
The Opening Ceremony was really amazing and Zeina Sha’ban is a great player and deserves to hold the JORDANIAN FLAG… I hope they will do all that they can to write Jordan’s Name On the Medals Board… good Luck for all the players and all that we can do is to pray for them… thnx Hareegaa for Supporting NADIN DAWANI
