Jordan’s Olympic champion Ahmad Abu Ghaush has continued to prove his worth as one of the world’s best by winning bronze at the season launching Moscow Taekwondo Grand Prix.
The 21-year-old started his campaign with a 25-15 win over Azerbaijan’s Mohammad Mammadov before beating Russia’s Konstantin Minin 21-7 in the quarter-finals.
Abu Ghaush then came up against the greatest fighter of his generation, Korea’s Dae-Hoon Lee, and found him in formidable form by eventually going down 19-7. Lee went on to win the gold medal.
It was an impressive start to the Grand Prix season though for Abu Ghaush who will next compete in September in Morocco
