HAMMAD MISSES OUT ON WORLD BRONZE
Jordan’s Abdullah Hammad just missed out on a medal at the World Karate Championships being held in Dubai, UAE.
Hammad lost his repechage final match in the -67kg weight to Egypt’s Ali Al Sawi, 3-1.
Earlier in the day he had shown some fine form in beating Slovakia’s Matig Hommula, but then lost to Al-Sawi, who is seeded number two in the world.
The defeat ended Jordan’s hopes for a medal in the singles events, with focus now switching to the team event this weekend.
