AMMAN — Jordan’s history making taekwondo star Ahmad Abu Ghaush has made a fine return to competition with a silver medal at the Fujairah Open in the UAE, according to the Jordan Olympic Committee News Service.

The 21-year-old won gold almost six months to the day at the Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro, and showed he is already getting back to his best with some stunning performances to reach the final of the -68kg.

He came up against a Russian fighter for the gold medal match but lost 17-15. A great return to action for our Olympic Champion who has a busy year ahead.
