UncategorisedJumana misses out on taekwondo medal

September 11, 201933

Jumana Mohamed missed a golden opportunity to Bahrain’s medal tally yesterday (Tuesday) at the Fifth edition of the Asian Indoor and Martial Arts Games in Ashgabat, Turkmenistan.

On the inaugural day of taekwondo, Jumana showed some outstanding performances in the women’s under-73kg weight group, where she reached the quarter-finals, but saw her medal hopes vanish after missing on podium spot after a heartbreaking 10-17 defeat to Kirstl Alora of the Philippines.

The 18-year-old Bahraini started her medal quest at the Taekwondo DanceSport Arena, beating Kanjana Sukeewas of Thailand in the under-16 round bout, in which her opponent was disqualified for committing so many illegal kicks and getting warning and deduction penalties.

In her next bout, Jumana took on Alora and hoped to be in the final four which would grant her one of the top medals. The young Bahraini fighter put up a brave show, but the experience of her Filipino opponent proved vital in this three-round bout.
Bahrain remained with two medals to its tally, thanks to Ali Munfaredi and Ahmed Shebeeb, who took the men’s under-77kg gold and bronze medals, respectively on Monday.

The taekwondo bouts were closely followed by Bahrain Royal Equestrian and Endurance Federation president and Bahrain chef de mission Shaikh Faisal bin Rashid Al Khalifa, Bahrain Olympic Committee general secretary Abudlrahman Askar and other delegation officials.

Taekwondo action continues today when Juwana, the younger sister of Jumana, will start her campaign as she takes on Thai opponent Nguyen Ha of Vietnam in another last-16 round fight in the under-62kg weight category.

Bahrain’s third team member Walaa Al Doseri heads into her opening women’s under-57-kg fight the following day when she clashes with Chimi Dolma of Bhutan.

The trio Bahrainis are being coached by Tawfeeq Nuwaiser of Jordan, who earlier described the event is a golden opportunity for his young athletes to acquire more experience, improve their skills and boost their rating globally.

Bahrain is sending nine athletes in three sports disciplines – jiu jitsu, taekwondo and wrestling – for this 12-day games, being organised for the first time in a central Asian country, and features more than 6,000 athletes from 65 nations from Asia and Oceania.
