AMMAN — Jordan finished its participation at the 4th Asian Beach Games with a bronze medal in the Muay Thai event, according to a statement from the Jordan Olympic Committee.

The medal came on a dramatic penultimate day of action in the tournament which has been taking place in Phuket, Thailand. And it went to Mohammad Salama who lost his semifinal match against Kazakhstan’s Vadim Loparev in the 75kg middleweight category.

Meanwhile, the ladies have provided us with some excellent entertainment this week and finished on a high with a nail-biting win on penalties against Turkmenistan to secure seventh spot overall in the competition.

It looked to be going well for Jordan after securing the first round 13-6 but they let Turkmenistan back in by losing the second leg 11-7. However, Jordan held its nerve in the shoot-out with a 10-9 verdict to win.
