A heavily pregnant Nigerian woman, Aminat Idrees, amazed many as she clinched a gold medal in Taekwondo contest at the ongoing National Sports Festival 2020. It should, however, be noted that the woman participated in the mixed Poomsae category. According to the British Taekwondo, Poomsae is “a set sequence of movements that consists of the various fundamental stances, blocks, punches, and kicks logically arranged in a meaningful order.”
The woman won the honour for Lagos state. In a video shared on Twitter, Aminat could be seen demonstrating different compositions in the fight game.
The performance was carried out in collaboration with a male counterpart identified as Arowora Roqeeb. Aminat also went home with silver and bronze medals in the female category and as an individual participant respectively.
