ABU GHAUSH SETTLES FOR MOSCOW BRONZE
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
