A Dream Come True

Rana Husseini

Abstract


Maha Barghouti is a name Jordanians will remember for the longest time. She was the first and only athlete to grant Jordan its first ever gold medal in an Olympic event in December 2000. Barghouti's achievement during the Sydney Paralympics in the Wheelchair table tennis competition lifted Jordan's flag waving in Sydney's skies. "I always dreamt of being the one who will lift Jordan's name high in an Olympic event, and thank God my dream came true," Barghouti said.
