AMMAN — Jordan’s taekwondo team continues to blaze a trail of glory in 2019 after winning six medals, including three golds, at the Sofia International Taekwondo Championship, according to the Jordan Olympic Committee News Service.

Natali Al Hmaidi led the way by winning gold in the -63kg weight and was joined at the top of the podium by Saleh Al Sharabati (-80kg) and Juliana Al Sadeq (-67 kg). Anas Al Sadiq (-87kg) and Zaid Halawani (-63kg) added silver medals, while Abdul Rahman Abu Samen took bronze in the -54kg weight.

The success is another timely measure of the progress being made by the Jordan Taekwondo Federation as it steps up its bid to qualify fighters for the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games. The medals also provide a big boost ahead of the World Championships taking place in Manchester, England, from May 15-19.
