 Jordan’s incredible run at the 2020 Tokyo Paralympic Games continued on Monday with a third gold medal, according to the Jordan Olympic Committee News Service.

With two Powerlifting golds and a Table Tennis bronze already in the bag, Jamil Al Shebli made it a hat-trick of Powerlifting golds by winning the 107kg category.

The 42-year-old lifted 241kg to take top spot from Iran’s Mansour Pourmirzaei.  He follows the heroics of teammates Abdel Kareem Khatab and Omar Karada who reached the top step of the podium earlier in the Games.

Khetam Abu Awad’s table tennis bronze takes Jordan’s medal haul to four, and places them 23rd in the standings.
