AMMAN — Jordan on Monday picked up a fourth medal at the 4th Islamic Solidarity Games taking place in Baku, Azerbaijan, according to the Jordan Olympic Committee News Service.

Following on from swimmer Khader Baqlah’s double gold in the pool, and Bashar Al Najjar’s karate gold in the 67kg weight, Halah Traish secured first glory for the girls with a bronze in karate.

Traish beat Pakistan’s Kulsoom 8-0 to secure the medal in the 68kg weight, having earlier lost her semifinal match to Turkey’s Eda Eltemur.

Jordan is guaranteed at least another bronze medal, this time in boxing, after Mohammed Al Wadi reached the semifinal of the 56kg weight with a brilliant victory over Kazakhstan’s Mirbek Sherov.
