Summer Olympics appearances (overview)

Jordan is expected to compete at the 2020 Summer Olympics in Tokyo. Originally scheduled to take place from 24 July to 9 August 2020, the Games have been postponed to 23 July to 8 August 2021, because of the COVID-19 pandemic.[1] It will be the nation's eleventh consecutive appearance at the Summer Olympics.

Boxing

Jordan entered five male boxers into the Olympic tournament. Rio 2016 Olympians Obada Al-Kasbeh (men's lightweight), Hussein Ishaish (men's super heavyweight) and his brother Zeyad (men's welterweight), along with two other rookies (Al-Wadi and Al-Hindawi), secured the spots on the Jordanian squad by advancing to the semifinal match of their respective weight divisions at the 2020 Asia & Oceania Qualification Tournament in Amman.[2][3]
