Supporting Olympic sport in Jordan

IOC President Thomas Bach is on a two-day visit to the Kingdom of Jordan, to visit the country’s Olympic Preparation Centre.

Jordan Olympic Committee (JOC) President and International Olympic Committee (IOC) Executive Board member HRH Prince Feisal and Jordan’s Olympic medallists today welcomed IOC President, Thomas Bach, to the Olympic Preparation Centre (OPC) in Amman as part of his two-day visit to the Kingdom of Jordan.

HRH Prince Feisal gave President Bach a tour of the facilities at the OPC before the IOC President met with young Jordanian athletes from a range of sports. 

The OPC is a world-class training facility for elite athletes from Olympic and non-Olympic sports, including support of specially-tailored training plans implemented by specialists.

“We are honoured to welcome President Bach to the Jordan Olympic Committee’s Olympic Preparation Centre in Amman and share with him Jordan’s love and passion for sport,” said HRH Prince Feisal.

“The JOC is committed to empowering all Jordanians to participate in sport, from the grassroots to elite level. We are very proud to show President Bach our world-class facilities and the home of the current and next generation of athletes preparing to represent Jordan on the international stage.”

The OPC opened its doors in 2018 and its facilities include a multipurpose sports hall, health club, medical clinic, catering services and accommodation for more than 100 athletes.
