Taekwondo, Alessio gold medal at the Grand Prix of Rome

The blue in the -80 kg category defeated the Egyptian Seif Eissa in the final

Simone Alessio won the gold medal at the taekwondo Grand Prix which ended today in Rome. In the Pietrangeli arena, at the Foro Italico, the Calabrian athlete defeated the Egyptian Seif Eissa in the final -80 kg category. In the first round the blue wins 4-2, then in the second he keeps his rival at bay and closes 4-3.

The path

The blue, who graduated as European champion in Manchester just two weeks ago, reached the final by beating one after another the Lebanese Tarek Mousalli (6-2, then 14-2), then Nedzad Husic (again in two rounds), for ending with the Tunisian Katoussi and finally Woo Hyeok Park, the last obstacle before the victory in the final.
