WKF TO REVISE AWARDING OF MEDALS IN KARATE 1-PREMIER LEAGUE

The World Karate Federation has announced that the process of awarding medals to athletes in Karate 1-Premier League will be amended.

Following the organisation’s interest to increase the appeal of Karate’s flagship events, the WKF had adapted the system of allocation of awards for the 2018 edition of the Karate 1-Premier League. The awarding ceremony has now been revised coming into effect at the Karate 1-Premier League in Dubai.

Further to the decision taken by Karate’s international governing body, the second and third ranked athletes in Karate 1-Premier League events will receive their medals recognising their final position in the competition right after the winners’ ceremony.

TWELVE MONTHS AFTER THE ANNOUNCEMENT WAS MADE INCLUDING KARATE IN THE PROGRAMME FOR THE TOKYO 2020 OLYMPIC GAMES, TOKEY HILL, THE 1980 KARATE WORLD CHAMPION AND CURRENT COACHING DIRECTOR AT THE USA KARATE FEDERATION, CAN BARELY BELIEVE HIS DREAM HAS COME TRUE.

“Just talking about it makes my skin tingle and the hairs go up at the back on my neck,” said Hill of karate’s debut at the Olympic Games Tokyo 2020. “Every day I wake up to train athletes, I think to myself, ‘it really happened’.
