Iran Takes Two Golds at World Junior Taekwondo C’ship

TEHRAN (Tasnim) – Iran’s Abolfazl Zandi and Mobina Nematzadeh won two gold medals on Day 2 of the 2022 World Junior Taekwondo Championship on Wednesday.

The first final of the night drew Zandi against Pornpawit Toruen from Thailand in the M-48kg.

The opening round set the tone for what would be a breathless and highly competitive match. With both fighters landing a number of head kicks the round finished 15-12 to Zandi. The second round followed in the same vein but Zandi was ultimately too strong and won the second round with a commanding score of 25-12.

Nematzadeh and Thailand’s Kamonchanok Seeken delivered the last of the finals as they faced each other in the W-49kg.

Nematzadeh put on a dominant display in the first round as she scored 9 points without conceding any. In the second round Seeken did manage to get on the scoreboard but it was not enough and Nematzadeh won the round 8-1 to win the match.

Iran’s Sogand Shiri (W-42kg) and Parnia Salmani (W-44kg) had claimed a gold and a silver respectively in the first day.
