AMMAN — Suhail Azzam has completed his second race at the 8th Asian Winter Games in Sapporo, Japan, according to the Jordan Olympic Committee News Service. On another challenging day of racing that prevented a number of participants from finishing, Azzam completed both of his runs in the Slalom to place 23rd from 42 entrants.

The event had been held over to Saturday due to poor weather on Friday. It completes a promising return for Jordan to winter sports with both Azzam and teammate Sara Sukhtian finishing their races successfully. Azzam also competed in the Giant Slalom on Wednesday, while Sukhtian went in the women’s version on Thursday. It is hoped that the pair’s participation will open the door for more Jordanians to compete at winter sports events in the future.
