Jordan made its first Summer Olympic appearance in 1980 and has competed ever since. The nation sends a very small delegation; typically under 10 athletes compete in such sports as athletics, shooting, swimming, table tennis and taekwondo. Jordan won its first medal in 2016 where taekwondo athlete Ahmad Abu-Ghaush won gold in the men’s -68kg event.
