    Jordan’s first ever Olympic champion Ahmad Abughaush looks forward to Tokyo 2020

    Ahmad Abughaush may be only 22 years old, but he is already arguably the most famous Jordanian athlete of all time. At the Olympic Games Rio 2016, 10th seed Ahmad fought through four thrilling taekwondo rounds – including defeating both the London 2012 champion and the second seed – to claim the -68kg category gold medal. It was Jordan’s first Olympic medal in any sport. Back in Jordan, we caught up with the smiling fighter to hear what impact his gold has had on his homeland, how his daily life has changed and why his coach does not let him have free reign in restaurants.

    IBIS, cross-sectoral collaboration 365 days a year
