That was quite a comeback :clap: Abazari and Askari lost their matches, Poursheib and Khodabakhshi made it 2-2 and it all came to the last match of Ganjzadeh. poor guy has to go home with a ruined face :d the Turkish guy threw everything without any kind of control to his face. that was surprising they didn't disqualify him after that illegal punch which made Ganjzadeh bleed again.

 

also a very surprising bronze medal in team Kata ! I never trust the "results" in Kata, I don't know if they were really better than Turkey or it was just a random decision from the refs.

 

Iran finished 3-0-3 last time in Austria which was supposed to be impossible to repeat but they almost got the same result here (1 more medal but 1 less gold) and since Karate made it to the Olympics this was supposed to be tougher than the previous edition.

 

I can't complain , great result. they won 3 medals (3 different colors) in Olympic events. this will be great if they can repeat that in Tokyo but first they have to qualify !! which I believe will be harder than winning the medal !
