AMMAN — Olympic gold medallist Ahmad Abu Ghaush will miss this weekend’s 23rd Asian Taekwondo Championships after pulling out with injury during a training camp in South Korea, according to the Jordan Olympic Committee News Service.

The 22-year-old will sit out the tournament in Ho Chi Minh, Vietnam, in order to be ready for the first Grand Prix event of the season in Rome in June.

Head coach, Faris Al Assaf, said that apart from Abu Ghaush’s set back, the camp went well with the rest of the team setting their sights on podium places.

Jordan will be represented in Vietnam by Zaid Mustafa, Mohammad Al Tamimi, Ruslan Lebzo, Hamzeh Qattan, Saleh Al Sharabati, Bana Daraghmeh, Rama Abu Al Rub and Juliana Al Sadeq.
