Ulugbek Rashitov defeated the three-time taekwondo champion

Our compatriot Ulugbek Rashitov in the weight category up to 68 kg in taekwondo brought Uzbekistan the first victory of the day. He defeated three-time world champion Lee Dehan.

Rashitov, who missed an opportunity in the first round, won in the 2nd and 3rd rounds. Due to the" Golden Strike", which decided the fate of the match, our representative scored 2 points and reached the quarterfinals.

Ulugbek Rashitov will now face Iranian Mirhoshim Hussein for a place in the semifinals.
