RIO DE JANEIRO -- Britains defending taekwondo champion Jade Jones hung onto her title. Jordans Ahmad Abughaush gave his country its first Olympic medal with a surprising run to the gold.In an action-packed fight Thursday, the top-ranked Jones used an almost continual stream of aggressive attacks that Spains Eva Calvo Gomez was unable to counter in the womens 57-kilogram division at the Rio Games. Jones won 16-7. Jones scored two head kicks within seconds of each other during the first round for an early lead that she never relinquished.The 20-year-old Abughaush won in the mens 68-kilogram division, defeating Russias Alexey Denisenko.The top-ranked Jones, 23, took the gold medal at the London Games and also won the European championships in May. On Thursday, Jones dominated all of her opponents, often scoring first off her lightning-quick front leg, before hopping toward her opponent while throwing repeated head kicks. Her British teammates have nicknamed her the headhunter for her trademark move.Its unbelievable, Jones said afterward. I knew I wanted to be a legend after London. This proves it wasnt just a fluke.After her victory, Jones brought her coach onto the mat to celebrate before the two posed for pictures with the flags of Britain and Wales.Gomez, seeded second, won a silver at last years world championships. She and Jones are longtime rivals and have often split major taekwondo competition victories between them.The womens bronze medals were won by Egypts Hedaya Wahba and Irans kimia alizadeh Zenoorin.Abughaushs victory wrapped up a surprising day of upsets. In a nail-biting final, Abughaush landed several jumping head shots that elicited gasps from the audience. Abughaush beat Denisenko by a score of 10 to 6.Abughaushs success was closely watched back home -- much of Jordans royal family stayed up to watch his historic run at the Olympics. Soon after he received his medal, he got a telephone call from the Kings brother, Prince Feisel al Hussein, president of the countrys Olympic Committee.He told me that the people of Jordan are very happy and crying tears of joy for me, he said. Abughaush said he was very happy to be able to win Jordans first Olympic medal. He acknowledged his rather unorthodox style, saying that while he and his coach had plotted out how to fight certain opponents, certain moments on the mat were improvised.He said he would celebrate his gold medal by going out with other Jordanians in Rio and by singing with them.Earlier in the day, the 10th-ranked Abughaush knocked out second-seeded Lee Dae-Hoon of South Korea before eliminating Olympic champion Joel Bonilla Gonzalez of Spain, who won the 58-kilogram division at the London Games. Lee applauded Abughaushs performance after being beaten by him, raising Abughaushs arm in victory when he was announced the winner.Denisenko knocked out Turkeys defending Olympic champion Servet Tazegul before defeating top-ranked Jaouad Achab of Belgium.The mens bronze medals were won by Spains Joel Bonilla Gonzalez and South Koreas Dae-Hoon Lee. Isiah Thomas Pistons Jersey . -- When the Florida Panthers fell behind by two goals in the first period to the top team in the NHL, it appeared they were on their way to yet another loss. Pistons Jersey . Those lessons were more than enough to overwhelm the Utah Jazz. Lou Williams scored 25 points and the Hawks continued their offensive upswing as they rolled to an easy 118-85 victory over the Jazz on Friday night, winning their third straight and for the fourth time in five games. . -- Anaheim Ducks captain and leading scorer Ryan Getzlaf has been scratched from Sunday nights game against the Vancouver Canucks because of an upper-body injury. Kentavious Caldwell-Pope Pistons Jersey . Roman Josi had a goal and an assist to lead the Predators to a 4-1 victory over the Dallas Stars on Monday night. Caron Butler Jersey . All of the scoring came in the final 20:04. Lucic scored on a power play at 15:46 of the third period, when he tipped a shot over Stars goalie Kari Lehtonen for a 3-1 lead. While South Africa are no longer worried by Australias pace, they remain wary of an attack that will test their batsmen in home conditions, in what is expected to be a battle of the bowlers in the upcoming three-Test series.In terms of real, real pace, 150s-plus, guys like Mitchell Johnson and Brett Lee [arent around], but there are still guys who hit great areas; quality bowlers, Neil McKenzie, South Africas batting coach, said. The aggression is still there. I dont know if the 150 is still there - Starc can get it up - but they are still a quality bowling line-up.With Australias squad yet to be announced, and several seamers still in contention for a place, South Africa cannot be certain who they will face, but they are studying all possibilities. They may even have a glance at the Sheffield Shield on television, if for no other reason than novelty, because South Africas first-class cricket is not broadcast, and no matter what they see, McKenzie is confident it will not intimidate them.He did not go as far as to say South Africa no longer see Australia as the final frontier, primarily because they have won their last two Test series there, but stressed that the batsmen have no need to be afraid, of either the bowlers or the conditions. I dont think they will be underrated, ever, especially Australia. We know theres a rich history, lots of tradition, and a lot of pride in their performances, he said. The bowlers are still quality, can still get you out and can still win Test matches, youve still got to respect whoever comes out there. But, I dont think its the fear factor. Most of the guys are worried about losing their wicket, not of the fear factor, and thats hhow it probably should be.ddddddddddddThe WACA is no longer the pacemens paradise it once was either and South Africa may even consider themselves on even keel going into the series opener. I dont think its the WACA of old, of 15 years ago, McKenzie said. Most of the guys are brought up on quick decks back home, so I think the adjustment there is easier.South Africas preparation for that match starts on Thursday, when, after a week spent on the pink ball, they play a two-day practice match with the usual red cherry. Their opposition is not as strong as an A side, but McKenzie said they want to work on fine-tuning skills. Its about getting mental preparation, getting the technique right and getting guys to feel good about their games.Some of South Africas players, like Quinton de Kock, who scored a century despite taking ill during the first practice match, and JP Duminy, will already be in a good space, but there are others who will want to spend time in the middle before the first Test. Their openers, Stephen Cook and Dean Elgar, made 71 runs between them in four innings in the first warm-up game, and Faf du Plessis, who also batted twice, totalled 28. McKenzie is hopeful they can improve on that. Ideally, you want everyone going into a Test match with a couple of runs under their bat, he said. We allow a lot of the guys individual preparation. A guy like Hashim, if he says he has had enough and he is in a good space, we will try and push him further down the order [in the warm-up games] or give him a rest so the others can get runs.
