Jordan’s Olympic champion Ahmad Abu Ghaush will be returning to competition on December 9 after being invited to compete in the World Grand Prix finals in Azerbaijan.
The event draws the world’s best 16 fighters so could well be a replay of the exhilarating Olympic 68kg category which was dominated by Abu Ghaush in Rio de Janeiro.
The 20-year-old jumped to number five in the world after recording Jordan’s first ever Olympic medal, and he has since returned to training ahead of the upcoming Grand Prix.
Meanwhile, the Jordan Taekwondo Federation has been named as the best in the Arab World for 2015/16 by the AUG Consortium who rank across three categories: Leadership, Business and Community.
The award will be first presented in Marrakech, Morocco on November 27.
