TWO JORDAN GOLDS AT ASIAN CHAMPIONSHIPS
Dec 11, 2016
TWO Jordanian ju jitsu fighters are sitting on top of Asia today, with one waiting to see if she is also sitting on top of the world.
Both Lama Qubbaj and Haider Rashid won their Asian weight titles over the weekend, with Lama adding the continental honour to the World Championship title she won last month.
She now has an anxious wait to see whether she will end the year as the No 1 ranked +70kg fighter in the world.
Qubbaj was joined at the 1st Asian Ju Jitsu Championships in Ashgabat, Turkmenistan, by Rashid who won his four matches by submission against opponents from Turkmenistan, Kazakhstan and Kurdistan.
It completes a memorable year for ju jitsu which has fast established itself as one of Jordan’s fastest growing sports.
