World Taekwondo Grand Prix: Armin Hadipour Claims Silver
TEHRAN (Tasnim) - Iran’s Armin Hadipour Seighalani won a silver medal at the World Taekwondo Grand Prix series event Saturday night.
In the men’s under 58kg final, world silver medalist Mikhail Artamonov of Russia defeated Hadipour Seighalani with a three-point score in golden point after a rather uninspiring 0-0 draw in regulation time.
The bronze medals went the way of Thailand’s Tawin Hanprab and Spain’s Jesus Tortosa Cabrera.
Sajjad Mardani of Iran had already won a bronze medal in the men’s over 80kg.
A total of 213 athletes from 56 countries, plus one refugee team, are competing across four male and four female Olympic weight categories at the Grand Prix in London from Oct. 20 to 22.
