In Aguascalientes, Mexico, a taekwondo qualification tournament was held over this past week.

Peru´s Julissa Diez Canseco won the title of the event as she defeated Aruba´s Monica Pimentel 2-1 in the -49 kg category. With this win, she won a ticket to the 2016 Rio Olympic Games.

Diez Canseco is the first Peruvian to qualify for the Olympics in taekwondo. She has had an impressive start to the year with a win at the 2016 Canada Open and then this recent competition in Aguascalientes. As her training progesses, she looks to triumph at the Olympic Games later in the year.
