Jarun -_Palestine_Celebrating

Stone Sports Management would ike to congratulate Ottawa Fury FC Defender Omar Jarun and the Palestine Natinoal Team for winning the 2014 Asian Challenge Cup after a 1-0 win over the Phillipines  This historical accomplishment is the first major tournament win for Palestine, and the New York Times did a feature on Jarun prior to the Final to which he claimed it was the biggest match in the Naton's history.  Jarun traveled half way across the world in order to return to the National Team after a three-year hiatus.  Jarun cited Ottawa Fury FC's season and training environment as a major reason for his tournament's preparation.


Palestine came in the tournament ranked 165th in the World and 34th in Asia.  The win saw Palestine jump an incredible 80 spots and FIFA now ranks them 85th in the world - their highest ever ranking.  Jarun and the Palestine NT incredibly did not concede any goals during the tournament.  A great accomplishment that has made its homeland proud with celebrations lasting days back in Palestine and for the team in Maldives.  Jarun hopes too that the win will help Palestine's image off the field as well.
