Hedaya Malak wins Egypt’s second-ever Taekwondo bronze medal
Hedaya Malak defeated Belgium’s Raheleh Asemani 1-0 to claim the 57kg Taekwondo bronze medal at the 2016 Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.
Malak came into the match on the back of a disappointing 0-1 loss to Olympic gold medal favorite Eva Calvo Gomez, a defeat that prevented her from reaching her first-ever Olympic final.
Nevertheless, the 23-year-old kept a cool head to defeat Asemani in the fourth (golden score) round, after three scoreless normal rounds.
With this victory, Malak becomes the second Egyptian – and first Egyptian woman – to win an Olympic medal in Taekwondo, after Tamer Bayoumi achieved the same feat at Athens 2004.
Malak adds the Rio 2016 bronze medal to her gold medal from the 2015 Taekwondo Grand Prix in Mexico, and will be pleased with her achievement in Brazil having only managed to reach the quarter-finals four years ago.
