Dr. Ali Abu Dari, Head of the Sports Activities Department at the Deanship of Student Affairs served as International Technical Official (ITO) in a major championship.
Dr. Ali was a Referee & Judge Coordinator at the ASBC Asian Confederation Junior Boxing Championships which tookplace in Fujairah, United Arab Emirates during August.
“I have been working as Secretary General in the Jordan Boxing Association and I assisted many local national events in the recent years. Furthermore, I was the Team Manager of Jordan’s delegation at the Budapest 2018 AIBA Youth World Boxing Championships where we had three qualified boxers," Abu Dari told the management of the Asian Boxing Confederation.
"This is my very first time working as International Technical Official (ITO) in an ASBC Asian Championships … The Opening Ceremony was an absolutely superb show with a lot of extraordinary ideas which amazed me and I think all of the other officials here in Fujairah," he said.
Jordan arrived with five boxers to Fujairah who were selected after the Junior National Championships. They trained together for only one month after the national event which was not enough for them to be competitive against such strong countries - Kazakhstan, India, Uzbekistan, Kyrgyzstan and others - although they fought bravely.
"I am a university teacher in Amman and not so easy to handle all of my duties together with boxing but I am ready to develop and I have strong targets. In the future for longer term I would like to be Technical Delegate in the events but I need more experiences before the course,” said Jordan’s new official Mr. Ali Abu Dari in the venue of the competition.
