Fahd Ammar has provided Jordan with a third silver medal at the 25th Asian Taekwondo Championships in Chuncheon, South Korea. Ammar breezed into the final with victories over Nepal’s Neraj and Chinese Taipei’s Li Ming before losing the gold medal match to Uzbekistan’s Nikita Ravalovich, 2-1. This is a first Asian senior medal for Ammar who has previously won gold medals at the Asian Youth Championships in 2019 and Asian Junior Championships in 2017. However, teammate Rama Abu Al-Rub missed out at the quarter-final stage in the -73kg weight after losing to Iran’s Zahraa. Ammar’s medal is added to a pair of previous silvers won earlier in the event by Zaid Mustafa (-68kg) and Louay Humaidan (-54kg).
