Doha (QAT) / AGU Office, December 22, 2010: The Jordanian gymnast Ali Al Asi has been just crowned Best Arab Athlete 2010 by HE Mohammad bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Governor of Dubai and Deputy of the United Arab Emirates, at its recent meeting in Dubai.

With this award, Ali goes down as a legend in Arab sports. He owes this honour to his outstanding Rings results for the 2010 season and, more particularly, to the title he claimed over Japan’s Kazuki Machida, China’s Hong Kong native Kiu Chung Ng and the Netherlands’ Jeffrey Wammes at the 2010 FIG World Cup in Qatar.
The Best Athlete 2010 jury selected the Jordanian gymnast from among 132 Arab athletes from a variety of disciplines in contention for this prestigious award. The official ceremony will be held in January 2011 in the luxurious rooms of the Armani Hotel in Dubai’s Khalifah Tower.
This honour demonstrates the Jordanian Gymnastics Federation’s commitment to developing the discipline within and beyond its own borders; an appropriate return on an investment made by the gymnast himself, his entourage and the entire federation.
