Dunya AbuTaleb, the Saudi taekwondo champion, continues to shine on the global stage as she has secured the fourth place in the international rankings for the -53 kg weight category for June, a historic achievement for any Saudi athlete in the sport's history, SPA reported.
AbuTaleb, already the first Saudi woman to qualify for the Paris 2024 Olympics, has her sights set even higher. With her recent Asian Championship gold medal (another first for Saudi women's taekwondo), she's considered a strong contender for the World Championship bronze medal.
Meanwhile, on the men's side, Riyad Hamdi, a member of the Saudi Taekwondo national team, has also made significant strides. Thanks to his impressive international and continental victories, including the 2024 Asian Championship gold medal, he is now ranked among the top 10 players globally in the -54 kg weight category.
