Olympics

ByTheMinRio2016

Good evening everyone, ready for some taekwondo? Lutalo Muhammad goes for GB in the 80kg semi final, which starts in just a few minutes. @Ugster1 with you for it.

Lutalo on his way out, along with his opponent from Azerbaijan - Milad Beigi Harchegani.

It's a pretty quick sport, this - points scored for kicks to the body and head, three two minute rounds. One point for the body, three for the head. Off already - no score yet...

Pretty cautious start from both, finding the range...

End of the first round - no score for either, and both have picked up a 'yellow card' - Kyong-go - two of those and it's a point to the opponent. Off again...

Action in the second round! Muhammad takes the lead, gets head shot in too. Looks like opponent has equalised, but it's chalked off! GB lead 5-1

Third round, and it's still a lead at 5-3 for Muhammad. Minute left...

Some penalties for both, but remains 5-3 Muhammad, 30 seconds... 5-4 now...

Head shot for Muhammad seals the deal!

LUTALO MUHAMMAD INTO THE FINAL! 12-7 in the end, lots of action in the last few seconds, but the British athlete always ahead.
