Day 1 – Report

Croatia, Iran and Russia were the three first nations to win a gold medal at Rome 2019 Grand Prix after Jelic, Hosseini and Larin stepped on top of the Women’s 67, Men’-68 and Men’s +80 kg divisions on Friday.

Jelic tasted glory after getting rid of Jan-di Kim from Korea by 8-3 in a match that had no points until the last second of the second round, when Kim took a 1-0 lead that wasn’t equalized until only 45 seconds were remaining, the moment Jelic scored through a punch. The Croatian managed to win gold after connecting no less than a spinning back kick followed by a front kick from in the last few seconds, which made her win the match 8-3.

Hosseini was forced to defeat no other than the triple world champion Dae-hoon Lee (KOR) in order to grab the Men’s -68 kg title. The Iranian beat the Korean star by a close 13-11 after a combat full of emotions who did not have a clear winner until the very end, when Hosseini found Lee’s body with a kick to break the tie to 11.

In Men’s +80 kg, Larin proved once again he is the king of the heavy weight of our sport at the moment and added another gold to his cabinet after clinching the world title in Manchester 2 weeks ago. The Russian edged Zhaparov from Kazakstan in a fight that was almost in the bag of the outsider, who led by a clear 7-1 with only 30 seconds to go. Enough time for Larin to recover, as he combined three consecutive kicks to tie the score to 7 and managed to close the match out with very little time remaining, completing his comeback by landing another kick to the body to win the match 9-8.


History was also made as the first ever Poomsae Grand Prix was held to showcase the non-combat discipline. Yu-Han Lin of Taipei won gold in the freestyle individual male over 17 and Jiyoung Lee of Korea won the freestyle individual female over 17.
