Jordan’s success at its own Al Hassan Open Taekwondo Championship continued on the final day with Natali Al Humaidi adding another gold for the hosts.
The young fighter won the -63kg category, which is ideal preparation for her participation at the approaching Youth Olympic Games in Argentina.
Meanwhile, her teammate Fahed Ammar added a silver in the -78kg category to make it an extremely successful event for the Jordanian fighters among the 1,200 who took part from 33 countries.
The final day was attended by HRH Prince Rashed Bin Al Hassan, President of the Jordan Taekwondo Federation, and Princess Zaina Al Rashed, Director of the Olympic Preparation Programme.
The event manager, Ali Al Asmar, said that the event had gone down very well with the participants and says it will open the door for more major Taekwondo events to come to Jordan.
“We are very happy with how the event has gone,” he said. “It couldn’t have gone any smoother and I thank all those who worked so hard to make it a success.
I am sure that this will pave the way for other Taekwondo events to come to Jordan in the future.”
