Egypt’s Taekwondo Fighter Hedaya Malak defeated on Monday World No.6 Magda Henin 11-10 to reach the quarter- final of the -67kg in Tokyo Olympics 2020.
The Egyptian fighter will face World No.3 Lauren Williams. The match will kick off on Monday.
The other is Alaaeldin Abouelkassem, who won a fencing silver medal in the men’s foil event at the 2012 Olympics.
Malak, 28, reached the Olympics in February 2020 after coming on top of a qualification tournament in Rabat, having overcome an ankle injury scare.
“Winning a medal at the Rio Games helped me avoid facing high-profile fighters in the qualifiers,” the soft-spoken Malak said.
“I will keep training hard as I target winning another medal in the Tokyo Games.”
Malak, world no.15 with 189.80 points, won the bronze medal in Rio in the women’s -57kg category after beating Belgium’s Raheleh Asemani by the golden kick.
