As a Chef de Mission, I am responsible for all the athletes of the Jordanian team. From what I’ve seen here in London and having been to the Olympic Park, Athletes' Village and venue sites, I am certain they’ll have a great experience next year and a chance to compete with the best athletes from around the world.
Over the last few days we have seen superb state-of-the-art facilities, the meticulous and professional organisation of the LOCOG team, rich English heritage and most importantly a very warm welcome.
London is without a doubt going to unite the world next year in truly exceptional and inspiring Games that will leave a legacy for years to come.
I competed as a swimmer at both the Sydney 2000 and Athens 2004 Olympic Games, and just as I was privileged to take part in these Games, so I am honoured to represent my country Jordan as a Chef de Mission.
For Jordan, the competition is very important, but equally important is that our athletes will get the opportunity to make new friends from different cultures and experience the spirit and true values of the Games.
It is also wonderful to see so many athletes working with LOCOG, headed by two-time Olympic medallist Lord Sebastian Coe. Athletes serving athletes, I believe that this is exemplary and goes to show that athletes are the driving force of the Olympic Games.
London 2012...we can’t wait!
