Egypt wins two silver medals at World Taekwondo tournament in France



Two Egyptian athletes won silver medals during their participation in the 13th French Open World Taekwondo tournament.

Hedaya Malak Wahba snatched a 67-kg silver medal, while Mohamed Farag yanked a 58-kg silver in the tournament.

Being just 17 years old, Farag recently joined the Egyptian national Taekwondo team.

In 2016, the 24-year old Wahba won a bronze medal, bringing Egypt its third medal in the Rio Olympics in Brazil.

Wahba was Egypt’s second female Olympic athlete to win a medal in Rio 2016 and the first ever Arab and Egyptian female medalist in Taekwondo.
