The Jordan Olympic Committee (JOC) and the Crown Prince Foundation have renewed a joint cooperation agreement for a fifth year.
The agreement sees the JOC assume responsibility for achieving and implement the goals of the Qusai Initiative, a medical project created by the Crown Prince Foundation.
The Qusai Initiative aims to train and certify sports officials to deal with any emergency or injury athletes may encounter while training or participating in competitions.
JOC secretary general Nasser Majali and Tamam Mango, executive director of the Crown Prince Foundation, signed the renewed agreement.
The JOC secretary general stressed the importance of the Qusai Initiative, which has contributed to the development of sports therapy in Jordan and ensures the security and safety of athletes.
"Cooperation between the JOC and the Crown Prince Foundation continues for the fifth year in a row due to the great development that the sports treatment sector in Jordan has witnessed during the past years of cooperation," Majali said.
The Qusai Initiative plan in 2021 will be based on continuing to support therapists' development and upgrading their skills to ensure the well-being of Jordanian athletes.
"Our work partnership with the JOC is one of the main and important partnerships, and it comes in response to our policy of work aimed at coordinating with partners and specialists in various sectors," Mango added.
"The joint work with them in this regard will greatly contribute to achieving the desired goals and reflect the vision of Prince Hussein bin Abdullah, the Crown Prince, who launched this initiative commemorating the memory of player Qusai Al Khawalda, and to strengthen the sports system in Jordan by qualifying young people to be healers."
