Uzbek athletes in the Tokyo 2020 Olympics

Uzbekistan’s taekwondo fighter Nikita Rafalovich (-80 kg) defeated his Dominican opponent at the Tokyo 2020 Olympics.

The match against Moisés Hernández ended with a score of 17:7. In the quarterfinals, Nikita Rafalovich will fight against Milad Beigi from Azerbaijan.

Ulugbek Rashitov claimed a 34-29 victory over Great Britain’s Bradly Sinden on a day that saw some of the big names miss out on a shot at the main prize of Olympic gold.

But the tenacious Rashitov fought back valiantly, landing a four-point turning body kick inside the final 15 seconds for a 34-29 victory to claim Uzbekistan's first-ever medal in taekwondo.

Rio 2016 boxing champion Shakhobiddin Zoirov (-52 kg) defeated his Turkish opponent (5:0) at the XXXII Summer Olympic Games in Tokyo.

Zoirov left Batuhan Çiftçi almost no chance. He will fight against David De Pina of Cape Verde in the next round.
