The 2014 Karate World Cup champion has captivated Malaysians all around by beating Indonesia’s karate exponent Ignatius Joshua Kandou with the score of 3-1.
According to his interview with a TV Channel, Sharm has been actively involved in karate since young. The sport which initially started as a hobby has led him to a greater place now. Having said that, this isn’t Sharm’s first gold medal. He has previously emerged as the champion at the fifth South East Asia Championship 2016 and Sea Games in 2017 and 2019.
