 •  English

The coaches with the WKC Romanian Karate Federation (FRK-WKC) have expressed their satisfaction with the level shown by Romanian fighters in the European Championships for children, cadets and juniors organized by the World Union of Karate-Do Federations in Herstal, Belgium.

"A qualitatively good competition, even though the number of fighters was a bit reduced in comparison to our expectations. Being a European Championship and in expectation of the World Championship, the number of countries present was above average, but the number of fighters in the 15-17 years of age categories, cadets and juniors, was pretty reduced. From a quality stand point, the level was very, very good," said, for AGERPRES, Mihai Hanga, a federation-level kumite coach.

"We will have strong opponents in the future. Especially in the children and mini-cadets categories there was strong competition from other countries, but, if we maintain our training level from up to now, I believe that we will stay on top", Hanga emphasized.

"At the children level our behaviour was 'hats off!' but Italy and Poland are a thorn in our sides. In the junior and cadets categories they're clearly on the rise", the coach added.

Mihai Hanga hopes for an as numerous participation of Romanian fighters in the World Championships of next year, to be hosted in Dublin, Ireland: "Our participation depends on the financial part that we will receive from the Ministry [of Education and Sports] and from own resources. We will manage, I believe. We also expect support from parents, coaches, and clubs."

The FRK-WKC press officer, Constantin Andrei, has emphasized the distinguished performance of the Romanian karateka in Herstal: "The children's group of the federation has managed to put FRK-WKC on first, confirming once again the policy conducted by the federation regarding children and the future of this federation".

In the events reserved for children, the WKC Romanian Karate Federation gained first place, with 18 gold medals, followed by the Czech Republic (CABK) with 4 gold medals, Slovakia (SFKMA) with 4 gold medals, and Poland (PFKS) with 2 gold medals. AGERPRES
