Asma Alhosani made history on Friday when she became the UAE’s first woman to secure a gold medal in martial arts at the Asian Games as UAE Show Jumpers Omar Al Marzouqi and Abdulla Al Marri claimed silver and bronze medals.

On the second day of the jiu-jitsu competitions, Alhosani showcased the outstanding performance of Emirati athletes as she emerged as the standout athlete. She was joined on the podium by Shamsa Alameri and Mahdi Alawlaqi, who secured bronze medals, marking it a landmark day for the National Jiu-Jitsu Team, sponsored by the Mubadala Investment Company.

They now boast an impressive total of seven medals, including two gold, three silver, and two bronze in jiu-jitsu, according to the “Zawya” website.

The UAE has won 16 medals, including three golds, five silvers and eight bronzes.

Competing in the Women’s Jiu-Jitsu -52Kg final, Alhosani prevailed over China’s Jie Miao, winning by points.
