He also won in the first round against the 2018 European champion and the 2017 world runner-up Mikhail Artamonov, when he settled the confrontation with a score of 18-25 after three rounds of fire between the players.

Jendoubi and Bronze Medal

The Tunisian player Jendoubi had previously won the bronze medal in taekwondo at the 2018 Summer Youth Olympics for the weight of 48 kg in Argentina, and the gold of the African Games in 2019 in the Moroccan capital Rabat with a weight of 54 kg.

This sport appeared in Korea and was known for more than 2,000 years. It was created and developed by the Prime Time Zone as a means of self-defense due to the many civil wars and the difficulty of life among ferocious animals.

This forced the Korean man to think of a way to defend himself against the invaders and against the animals, from which they began to learn the methods of defense and rapid onslaught.

And it was able to become an official Olympic sport in the 2000 Olympic Games, which took place in the Australian city of Sydney, after it was a show sport in the previous Olympics, which were hosted by the Korean city of Seoul, Barcelona, ​​​​Spain, and Atlanta, America.

It is worth noting, that the Olympic Games in the Japanese capital, Tokyo 2021, opened after being postponed from the summer of last year due to the Corona virus epidemic, and will continue until the eighth of next August.
