The former Jordanian Team Ahmad Abu Ghaush was back to competition this week after a very long break of 4 years, and we all know all the problems he has been through, when he was jailed for six months in his country Jordan.
He competed in the Saoudi Arabian Games and won four fights, (2-0 in all of them). By winning the final he was rewarded 1,000,000 SR, which is equal to 250,000 US $

 Ahmad Abughaush, a Jordanian taekwondo athlete, was born on 1 February 1996. He made history for Jordan by winning the gold medal in the 68 kg category at the 2016 Olympics. Before this achievement, Jordan had only won a bronze medal in 1988 when taekwondo was a demonstration sport.

Abughaush was born in Amman, Jordan. His father comes from a Palestinian background, as his grandparents had been relocated from the town of Abu Ghosh to Jordan many years ago.

Abughaush's journey in taekwondo began at a local training center in Amman. His skills impressed and earned him a spot on the national team. In 2010, he participated in the Taekwondo World Championship for juniors, held in Sharm el-Sheikh, where he became the only Arab athlete to win a gold medal. The following year, he competed as an elite athlete at the 2011 World Taekwondo Championships in the men's finweight event but was defeated by Meisam Bagheri in the 16th finals. Abughaush continued to participate in various championships and was honored as the best Jordanian athlete by the Jordan Olympic Committee in 2012.

Unfortunately, in 2013, Abughaush took a year off due to a cruciate ligament injury. However, he persevered and returned to training, making a strong comeback in 2014 by winning gold medals in several international championships.
