A PE student of Rasht Islamic Azad University has won a silver medal at the World Taekwondo Grand Prix series 3, London 2017.

According to an ISCA report, Armin Hadipour Seighalani was defeated by world silver medalist Mikhail Artamonov of Russia, with a three-point score in golden point after a rather uninspiring 0-0 draw in regulation time in the men’s under 58kg final.

The bronze medals went the way of Thailand’s Tawin Hanprab and Spain’s Jesus Tortosa Cabrera. Sajjad Mardani of Iran had already won a bronze medal in the men’s over 80kg.

A total of 213 athletes from 56 countries, plus one refugee team, are competing across four male and four female Olympic weight categories at the Grand Prix in London from Oct. 20 to 22.
