Juan Diego García López secured Mexico their first-ever global crown in Para-taekwondo today as the sport’s 2019 World Championships concluded in Antalya in Turkey.
López beat Russia’s Magomedzagir Isaldibirov 8-4 in the men’s under-75 kilograms K44 final at the Antalya Arena.
Prior to that, he defeated Japan’s Shunsuke Kudo 12-2 in the semi-finals.
Also claiming an inaugural Para-taekwondo gold medal for her country on the world stage was Brazil's Débora Menezes, who overcame Uzbekistan's Guljonoy Naimova 7-3 in the women's over-58kg K44 final.
The bronze medallists were Japan's Shoko Ota and France's Laura Schiel.
Ota had earlier ended Great Britain's Amy Truesdale's hopes of winning a third world title, beating her 2-0 on golden point in the quarter-finals.
Taekwondo is due to make its Paralympic debut at Tokyo 2020.
It was one of two sports added to the programme along with badminton.
