Hedaya Malak defeats Taekwondo world champion, reaches semi-final
2015 Taekwondo Grand Prix winner Hedaya Malak defeated reigning world champion Mayu Hamada in a tense quarter-final match.
Malak entered the encounter on the back of a brilliant 13-0 dismantling of Colombia’s Doris Esmid Patino Marin, signalling her intent to challenge for a medal.
Her Japanese opponent, Mayu Hamada, cruised to a straightforward 9-0 win over Tunisian Rahma Ben Ali.
Hamada won gold at the 2015 Taekwondo World Championships in Russia, and was the toughest possible draw for the Egyptian.
Nevertheless, Malak managed to prevent her opponent from scoring a single point for all three regular rounds, before defeating Hamada with a well placed kick to the head in the fourth (golden score) round.
Hedaya Malak faces Spain’s Eva Calvo Gomez in the second semi-final, which will start shortly.
