Egypt took another podium finish over the weekend when Hedaya Malak took a third-place finish in taekwondo.

Egypt's taekwondo representative at the Rio Olympics, Hedaya Malak, has won the bronze medal after defeating her opponent, Belgium's Raheleh Asemani. The reigning African champion struck in the fourth round in the -57kg event, winning by the golden kick. The win secured Egypt's third medal at this year's Games after compatriots Sara Ahmed Samir and Mohamed Ihab also took third place finishes in weightlifting.
