Iran in team kumite final again :champion::clap: despite not being an Olympic event still team kumite is a very prestigious . Iran won this title in 2014 and 2016 and now there is a chance to win it for the 3rd time in a row. Iran had an easy draw until the semifinal where they beat Italy 3-0 thanks to Askari, Asiabari and Ganjzadeh winning their matches .

 

the final will be between Iran and Turkey.

what a pity. Iran lost to Japan in a very close match, :( before the last match for Alipour Iran was leading 1-0 and Alipour herself was leading 1-0. but lost it 2-1 in last 10 seconds and in extra match between Abbasli and Uekusa they finished 0-0 and Japan won by Hantei.

Iran advanced to the bronze medal match in women's team Kumite. :) still pity they could beat Japan and go all the way to the final. but even bronze will be great. I assume they will be favorite against Spain but host nation is always dangerous.

 

so at the end of the preliminaries. we have 3 chance for gold (Ganjzadeh and Askari in men's individual Kumite plus the team kumite). and 5 for bronze. (Poursheib and Derafshipour in men's individual Kumite, Bahmanyar in women's Ind. kumite, women's team Kumite and men's team Kata)

Spain hosting major karate events in the future is under serious threat after the country's Government refused to allow Kosovo to compete under their own flag at the World Championships here, World Karate Federation (WKF) President Antonio Espinós has warned.

Yep, everyone saw that coming since the very first moment. Didn't they already lose a European youth championships or something (and rightly so) because of refusing athletes to compete under their own flag?
