Spain's Adriana Cerezo Iglesias, a silver medalist at the Tokyo Olympics, won the gold medal at the Chuncheon Korea Open, predicting a gold medal at next year's Paris Olympics.
Adriana added 20 World Taekwondo Federation ranking points to the top of the world rankings in this weight class as she defeated Thi Kim Tuyen Truong of Vietnam on August 12 in the women's 49kg final to claim the gold medal. . Second place was Panipak Wongphatanakit of Thailand, a gold medalist at the Tokyo Olympics. Fanny Pac still holds the No. 1 Olympic ranking in this weight class.
Adriana took home her silver medal at the Tokyo 2020 Olympics. At that time, the opponent I met with Adriana in the final was also Fannie Fak. Adriana took a 10-9 lead over Fannie Pak until the third round, when she conceded a torso just before the end of the game and lost narrowly.
Even though Adriana was unfortunately defeated at the time, she clearly acknowledged the result of the match and showed the manner of raising her hand. This is the reason why she is evaluated for having both her skills and personality despite her young age.
Her Adriana's goal is, of course, a gold medal at the Olympics in Paris next year. In her post-game interview, Adriana revealed that "she is doing everything she can to bring about an unrepentant result at the Paris Olympics next year."
