Taekwondo star, Michelle Tau made a winning comeback to the ring as she bagged a gold medal at the recent World Taekwondo Montenegro Open G1 tournament.

In her first fight since August this year, Tau defeated her French and Bosnian opponents in a tournament that began from August 21-22 this year.

The victory earned her 10 more points in her quest to seal a spot at the 2024 Olympics Games in Paris, France.

Tau has been collecting points in different international tournaments around the world; something that has boosted her professional ranking.

She currently ranks number one in the under-46-kilogram female category in Africa, although she has dropped to number five from four on the global stage.

In an interview with Newsday Sports this week, Tau said she was happy to make a winning comeback after she last competed in August this year.

“I am trying to catch up as other athletes are constantly competing,” Tau stated.

She is currently preparing for the upcoming 2023 African Taekwondo Championshipsin Abidjan, Ivory Coast from November 9-11, this year.

Earlier this year, Tau bagged a gold medal at the Darker 2023 World Taekwondo Grand-Prix Challenge in Darker, Senegal. She also won another gold medal at the 7th Egypt Open tournament in Cairo earlier this year.

She also won a silver medal in the 2022 Israel Open Taekwondo Tournament and a silver medal at the Niger Open Taekwondo Tournament in February 2022, among her top-billed performances in 2023.
