Report
Concluding the WTE European Olympic Weight Categories Championships 2017, the 3rd competition day kept a lot of surprises for the finale of the championship.
The WTE event which includes the Olympic Games official competition divisions (4 senior male and 4 senior female weight categories) is seen by many competitors as the next Olympic Games forecast, since many former Olympians or upcoming ones choose to test their “Olympic” qualifications in this event.
That is why the London 2012 Olympic Medallists Carlo Molfetta (ITA), Joel Gonzales Bonilla (ESP) and Milica Mandic (SER) were also there, with the latter being one of the surprises of the championship, losing the Gold medal by the Russian Olga Ivanova.
What is more, Russia left almost no medal for the rest of the competitors as the Russian Taewkondo Union managed to collect the amazing number of 14 medals(!), while also among the surprises of the championships was the “outsider” gold medal of FYROM in the senior male +80 category.
The final female ranking concluded with Russia in the first place, followed by Latvia and Serbia along with Poland in the 3rd place, while the male ranking lists Russia in the lead, FYROM following and Bulgaria, Portugal and Ireland sharing the 3rd place.
In the country medal standings Russia comes first with 14 medals in total, 7 gold, 1 silver and 6 bronze medals.
FYROMacedonia gets the second place as its only gold medal is enought to rank higher and at the 3rd place comes Poland with 1 silver and 2 bronze medals in total.
Sofia left the best of impressions to the athletes and their teams, the recently renovated Asics Arena (former Festivalna Hall) was both resourceful and hospitable for the teams, while the Bulgarian Taekwondo Federation proved once more its capabilities in carrying out a high standards taekwondo championship. Therefore, the date is renewed for the first WTE Multi Taekwondo Championships already scheduled to be hosted in Bulgaria, which exact date will be announced promptly.
