Paralympic history (summary)
Summer Games

Jordan competed at the 2012 Summer Paralympics in London, United Kingdom from 29 August to 9 September 2012.[1]

Three members of the Jordanian team, two athletes and a trainer, were arrested after four females in Northern Ireland filed complaints alleging sexual assault by the men. They were released on bail after an embassy official promised they would be returned to face sexual assault charges.[2] The three men, two powerlifters and a trainer were subsequently withdrawn from the team.[3] One, powerlifter Omar Qaradhi, later pleaded guilty to sexual assault, and received a twelve-month suspended sentence.[4]
