Abu Ghaush will continue his quest for ranking points in the -74kg category and will be joined in Europe by Saleh Al Sharbati (-80kg), Hamzeh Qattan (+87kg),

Anas Al Sadiq (-87kg), Zaid Al Halawani (-58kg), Rouslan Libzo (-63kg), Juliana Al Sadeq (-67kg), Natali Al-Humaidi (-63kg) and Luna Abu Eisha (-53kg).

Ali Al Asmar heads the delegation, with national team manager Faris Al Assaf, coach Nabil Talal and therapist Louay Marayat making up the management team.

“This is the last big international championship that we will compete in ahead of the World Championships in Manchester in May,” said Al Assaf. “So I can’t stress the importance of this event enough as our fighters bid for Olympic qualification points.”
