2012 London Olympics: Terrence Jennings Takes Taekwondo Bronze

Terrence Jennings bounced back from a loss in his first bout to take bronze in the 68kg Taekwondo competition Thursday at the 2012 Summer Olympics in London.

Jennings, a native of Alexandria, Va. who currently lives in Miami, lost his first match to Servet Tazgul of Turkey by a final score of 8-6 (Tazgul went on to claim the gold medal in this event), but was placed into the repechage bracket. In the first of his two bouts, Jennings defeated Ukraine's Hryhorii Husarov 3-2. In the second, Jennings downed Diogo Silva of Brazil 8-5 to share the bronze medal with Afghanistan's Rohullah Nikpai, who defeated Martin Stamper of Great Britain, 5-3.

This was Jennings' only scheduled event of these Games.
