When the last of the winners of the Karate competition at The World Games received their medals and the closing ceremony put an end to the thrilling tournament, all the members of the Karate family participating at the event in Wroclaw (Poland) shared the feeling of having lived a historical moment for the sport.

The World Games 2017 which were held in Wroclaw (Poland) this past week represented the last participation of Karate in the multi-sport event before the Olympic debut of the discipline in the Olympic Games Tokyo 2020. This last edition of The World Games was considered memorable by the Karate family since many surprises took over the competition and all the categories were full of emotional moments.

“I had been working hard for this competition for a long time,” said Japan’s Kiyou Shimizu. “My intention is to focus on reaching my top level at the Olympic Games, and The World Games are an important stepping stone in this goal. I know I can be even better and I am putting my mind into it,” pointed out the winner of the Female Kata competition who added the crown at The World Games to her impressive tally of two world titles, five golds in Karate 1-Premier League, one continental title and two titles in underage World Championships. Her outstanding performance in Wroclaw was so remarkable that she was selected one of the Athletes of the Day of the event.

“I have learned a lot from The World Games. I hope that this recognition will contribute to further introduce Karate to the world,” said the Japanese Kata queen.
