Jordan is celebrating a new Asian champion after Ahmad Abu Al Soud won gold in the Pommel Horse event at the 8th Asian Artistic Gymnastics Championships in Mongolia.
Abu Al Soud performed superbly to reach the final of the event and then topped the standings, edging out Iran’s Saeid Reza Keikha into second and China’s Liu Rongbing into third.
Only last month, Abu Al Soud stunned judges at an international event with a new move that will be ratified and named after him by the International Gymnastics Federation following their Referees Committee meeting in August.
Teammate Majdi Al-Hahmoud qualified for the final stages of the floor event and finished a credible eighth.
