Lebanon has scored over a dozen medals in the ongoing 2021 Asian Taekwondo Championships.
Lebanese Taekwondoin Mark Khalife most recently scored a bronze medal on the third day of the championship and the first day of the under-54-kg Kyorugi (free-form sparring) category, on Wednesday.
Lebanon had won a total of 13 medals (11 bronze and 2 silver) on Monday, the first day of the competition which was reserved for Poomsae (movement patterns).
The 24th edition of the championships, organized by the Asian Taekwondo Union, is being held under the patronage of Lebanese President Michel Aoun in Nouhad Naufal Stadium, Zouk Mikael, where 23 Asian nations are competing.
With the conclusion of the third day of the championship, Habib Zarife, President of the Lebanese Taekwondo Federation, met with the Lebanese players and congratulated them on their accomplishments so far.
He encouraged them to achieve more good results in the remainder of the event, which will conclude on Friday. The final day of the 2021 Asian Taekwondo Championships will start at 1 PM and continue until 7:30 PM.
So far, South Korea tops the Kyorugi competition in the number of acquired medals (4 gold, 2 silver), followed by Iran (1 gold, 1 silver, 4 bronze), with Lebanon ranking 7th in the sparring category thus far (1 bronze).
