AMMAN — Jordan’s leading taekwondo fighters are heading to Chinese Taipei for the third round of the World Grand Prix from September 19-21, according to the Jordan Olympic Committee News Service.

The team is in good form with Juliana Al Sadeq, Hamzeh Qattan, Saleh Al Sharabati and Ahmad Abu Ghaush all winning medals at the Asian Games earlier this month.

Coaches Nabeel Talal and Laith Othman will travel with the team, with head coach, Faris Al Assaf, remaining in Jordan to train the three fighters preparing for the Youth Olympics in Buenos Aires, Argentina next month.

The best fighters in the world are all expected at the Grand Prix with the top 35 entered for each weight. At the previous Grand Prix in Moscow, Sadeq won silver and Sharabati took bronze.
