Description

Jordan formed a National Olympic Committee in 1957 that was recognized by the International Olympic Committee (IOC) in 1963. It was not until 1980, however, that Jordan’s athletes competed on Olympian fields, since which time they have participated at every Olympic Games. Jordan has not yet appeared in the Olympic Winter Games. In 2016, Ahmad Abughaush earned Jordan’s first medal of any color when he won taekwondo’s featherweight division at the Rio Games. Additionally, in 1988 and 1992, Jordanian taekwondokas won three bronze medals when the sport was a demonstration. Jordan’s Olympians have competed in 12 sports – archery, track & field athletics, boxing, equestrian, fencing, judo, shooting, swimming, table tennis, taekwondo, triathlon, and wrestling.
