Biography

Along with Arthur MacEvoy, Timothée Jordan served on the committee, under French captain and chairman of the French Sports Federation, Philip Tomalin, that organized the 1900 Olympic cricket tournament. Jordan, the son of an English racehorse trainer, opened the French batting and scored 11 in the first innings and was out for a duck in the second. In 1910, ten years after his Olympic exploits, Jordan played for France in a quadrangular tournament that was part of the Brussels International Exhibition, involving teams from The Netherlands, Belgium and the MCC.

Jordan appears to have been a British national in 1900, but he entered the Olympic cricket match while playing for the French side, Union des Sociétés Français de Sports Athletiques, although in Britain he was a member of the combined team made up of players from the Union Club and the Standard Athletic Club that joined with the French side for the Olympic match.
