AMMAN — While the Asian Games medals have rained down on Jordan over the past week in Jakarta, several of those who have missed out have played their part by setting new national records, according to the Jordan Olympic Committee News Service.

The latest came in Athletics on Tuesday night when Tamara Armoush finished a credible 11th in the 5,000m, beating her previous national record in a time of 16 minutes 44.98seconds. She will be hoping to put more pressure on another Jordan best time on Thursday when she competes in the 1500m.

Team Jordan have won a total of 12 medals so far in Jakarta, a new record at the games for the Kingdom.
