May 27-28 in Romania, the city of Sibiu, started the World Championship of Kyokushin Karate. More than 400 sportsmen from 41 countries took part in the tournament. The delegation of the Kyokushin Karate Federation of Armenia, led by President Andranik Hakobyan, also arrived in Romania with a composition of 5 athletes. 1. First, David Karapetyan fought. Our sportsman is already a year as he serves in the RA army. This kind of large-scale tournament is quite a difficult test for him. 2. Then Mher Gevorgyan participated, which, having won in 2 matches, unfortunately, lost because of the weight category. 3. Next, Narek Aboyan fought with an athlete from Russia, he was defeated because of emotional tension. 4. It should be noted the performance of Hovhannes Sargsyan. In the first battle, his rival was a Russian athlete, the vice-champion of the world. Hovhannes won. The second duel, he fought with an athlete from Russia, and won with a brilliant knockout. It was one of the best knockouts of the tournament. The third duel he held with the World Champion. Having won the first fight, unfortunately, Hovhannes did the wrong trick (blowing a hand in the face), and gained an annoying defeat. 5. However, our team did not stay empty-handed. Our athlete Gevorg Gevorgyan, having won in 3 battles and having lost the 4th fight, obtained the third place of honor. We want to note that this Championship was a tournament of the highest level, in which the best of the best took part. The team of Kyokushin Karate Armenia will always strive to take part in the strongest and fairest tournaments. Artificial victories and prizes are not for us!
