Mardani to represent Iran at World Taekwondo Grand-Prix

October 17, 2016

Sajjad Mardani will be Iran’s sole representative at the 2016 WTF World Taekwondo Grand-Prix Final.

The prestigious competition will be held in Baku, Azerbaijan on December 9-10.

Mardani seized a gold medal in the 2015 WTF World Taekwondo Grand Prix held in Mexico.

In the 2016 Olympic Games, the +80kg lost to Britain's Mahama Ch and failed to book a place in semi-final.   

Gold medalists in the World Taekwondo Grand-Prix will add 80 points to their qualification rankings for the 2020 Tokyo Olympic Games.

Silver and bronze medalists will also add 48 and 28.8 points respectively to their Olympics qualification tallies.
