Thrilling 2020 season to start with anticipated Karate 1-Series A Santiago

 

The year 2020 is set to be historic for Karate. As the Olympic debut of the sport is getting closer and closer, the season is expected to start with a much-anticipated event: the Karate 1-Series A Santiago. 

 

Karatekas are ing the days to shine in the Olympic debut of Karate, and while that moment comes, the first major event of the new year is going to be held in Santiago (Chile) from January 10 to 12.

 

The tournament to take place at Polideportivo Estadio Nacional not only opens the historic season for Karate.

 

It's an event not to be missed by athletes and fans alike, and here it is why: 

 

1. OLYMPIC QUALIFICATION 

 

The Karate 1-Series A Santiago is one of the last six events that are left in the Olympic qualification process.

 

Karatekas who want to win the qualification for the Olympic Games will attend the event as they need the points being attributed at the event in order to improve their chances in the Olympic standings.  

 

As the differences in the Olympic categories get closer and closer, every point counts.

 

Top-ranked karatekas are expected to travel to Santiago to earn the points at stake.

 

A competitor winning in Santiago may take around 500 points for a gold medal at the event.

 

This means that the quest to the victory and to the points in Chile will be electric.

 

2. LAST IN AMERICA 

 

Karatekas from the Americas have a unique opportunity with the Karate 1-Series A in Santiago.

 

This event will be the last Olympic qualifying tournament to be held in the continent before the qualifying process ends on April 6.

 

Athletes from the region are expected to be part of the tournament as they may earn the coveted points without the inconvenience of long-distance travelling.

 

After Santiago, karatekas from the Americas will have to travel to places like Paris (France), Dubai (UAE), Salzburg (Austria) or Rabat (Morocco) to try to fight for the points.  

 

3. CRUCIAL FOR KARATE 1-PREMIER LEAGUE

 

The Karate 1-Series A Santiago will be the only Series A event to be held before April 6.

 

The uniqueness of the tournament to take place in the capital of Chile is especially relevant for karatekas who are not placed among the top 100 of WKF World ranking.

 

As the participation in Karate 1-Premier League is limited, competitors aiming to be among the top 100 may want to compete in the Karate 1-Series A Santiago as a way to improve their position in WKF World ranking thus winning the right to participate in Karate’s first-class events. 

 

4. OPEN TO SURPRISES 

 

The Karate 1-Series A is the tournament of surprises.

 

Karatekas have been able to produce remarkable shocks in the last editions of the Karate 1-Series A which makes this event highly unpredictable and perfect for competitors aiming to make an impact in Karate’s elite. 

 

5. MEET THE BEST OF THE BEST

 

Most of the best karatekas in the world are expected to participate in the 2020 Karate 1-Series A Santiago.

 

Fans will have the chance to see their heroes in action.

 

Also, karatekas will find in Santiago the stage they can test their abilities against some of the top stars of the sport.

 

Since the registration is open, athletes wanting to fight the best karatekas in the world may do so in Chile.

 

World champion Bahman Askari of Iran, European champion Luigi Busà of Italy, newly-proclaimed Grand Winner Sajad Ganjzadeh of Iran, continental championships runner-up Lamya Matoub of Algeria, World Championships silver medallist Jana Bitsch of Germany and European Games champion Bettina Plank of Austria are among the top competitors who have already confirmed their participation in Karate 1-Series A Santiago.

Well, it wasn't the best start of season for Italy. I expected something more from Busato honestly...

A long shot, but can she actually earn points to keep the fight for an Olympic quota?

no, she's currently 58th in the OQR...no chance for her to climb up so many positions in the standings...

 

her only shot at the Olympics is the global tournament in Paris next May, as it's a 1-day shot with 3 spots up for grabs for all who doesn't make it through the OQR (or the continental/host Nation places)...

basically, it's a true world championship, where the 3 medallists book their ticket to Tokyo 2020...

Do you think that Douglas has any chance to get an Olympic spot?

 

I know that Vinicius is in a better position, and probably he'll be choose as our representant at the Olympic Tournament in Paris.

no, I think there's no chance for him to overtake Figueira in the overall OQR (however, qualification through the WR is not an option...Assadilov and one between Samdan or Crescenzo will get the spots in the -60kg class, as they are way ahead of Douglas in the standings)...

 

he needs to make up more than 2000 points, which is still mathematically possible, but really unlikely (moreover, the -67kg class is normally less "deep" than the -60kg, which means that Vinicius is likely to get easier chances to score good points in the last few events left in the race to Tokyo 2020)...
