I think he's still recovering from an old injury...:mumble:

Chiara Soldi (commentating the finals on PMG/Youtube stream) said she's talked with him and he promised to be on the mat for the Premier League Final in Tokyo, but she didn't say anything about the reason why he's not in Berlin this week...

at least the final day was good winning all 3 matches in medal round but Poursheib is actually in the same weight as Ganjzadeh (-84 and +84 will be merged for Tokyo) and Mehdizadeh at 60kg doesn't have a good chance to shine one weight up.

 

I know Asian Games was very important and I agree with that but I just hope not sending most of our top athletes into the Asian Championship doesn't hurt us at the end of the qualifiers. for example Ganjzadeh missed lots of "easy" points by not competing in Asian Champs and in +84 he doesn't cut weight . not sending him to Jordan one month before Jakarta was a mistake IMO. the reserve guy Abazari won the gold but what's the point!? he didn't even participate here in Berlin.

 

considering the current economical crisis Iran we won't see much of Iranians in future Karate1 events, :( only those who can pay for their own trips.

in the last weekend, the Karate 1 Serie A tournament in Santiago (CHI) was on stage...

among them: :ESP Sandra Sanchez Jaime (winner of the women's Kata), :TUR Serap Ozcelik (winner of the women's Kumite -50kg), :UKR Anzhelika Terliuga (winner of the women's Kumite -55kg, the most qualified class, with :TUR Tuba Yakan finishing 2nd and :BRA Valeria Kumizaki finishing 3rd), :FRA Leila Hertault (winner of the women's Kumite -61kg), Meltem Hocaoglu (winner of the women's Kumite +68kg), :ESP Damian Quintero (only 3rd in the men's Kata), :JOR Almasatfa Abdel Rahman and :BRA Vinicius Figueira (winner and runner-up in the men's Kumite -67kg), :TUR Ugur Aktas (winner of the men's Kumite -84kg) and :GER Jonathan Horne (only 2nd in the men's Kumite +84kg)...

after a few months out for injury, Busà is back with a vengeance...today he just destroyed all of his opponents on his route to the final match, including local favourite Ken Nishimura...

very good competition also for his sister Lorena, who reached the bronze medal match in her weight class...

on the other hand, not a very good day for the other Italian top guys who were in action earlier today (especially Maresca and Cardin, both losing to a pair of Kazakh fighters...slightly better performance by Angelo Crescenzo, but still not good enough to earn a spot in Sunday's finals)...

not a very good day for the Italian men, all of them going out too early (especially Busato in men's Kata, who looks in costant decline and at risk of compromising his chances to qualify for Tokyo 2020)...

meanwhile, decent results from Ferracuti and Semeraro, even if they could/should have done better (they lost to opponents they're supposed to beat each and every time they face each other)...

This is really sad Iran completely missed this round of Karate 1. :( and unfortunately we will hear news like this A LOT in future. financial situation looks terrible for most of sports federation in Iran. :( outside of multisport evens (which will get direct financial support from the government) why will rarely participate in international competitions.
