Karate team grab three golds


Barbados came away with three gold medals on the first day of the Karate World Cup at the Wildey Gymnasium on Friday.

Displaying outstanding defences and counter-attacks in the team bunkai segment, the squad, which has always been strong in Shotokan karate tournaments, again proved themselves on the mat to secure wins in three senior divisions.

They won in the male 20-39 as well as the male and female 50-plus segments.

Although the home team were clear-cut winners in both the 50-plus male and female categories scoring 25.6 and 25.3 points, respectively, the 20-39 group had to repeat their routine and secure victory after they tied with Canada for first place with 26.2 points. (RG)
