WKF ROMANIA president Mr. Florin MINA was our host for the last European Championships in Baia Mare.
Although other championships were held in Europe in the same week, we were able to welcome 18 nations in Baia Mare. More than 300 participants went over the scales, together with the multiple and double starts we had over 500 fights.
The best teams were Romania, ahead of France and Austria.
As always, the performance in the ring sport was as expected high. Also in tatami sport there were great Semi contact fights. The strongest discipline was once again kick-light.
Very pleasing was the participation of the many children U13 and youth classes U18.
In the finals of the semi contact team fights Austria beat the German team clearly with 3: 2 victories.
The most successful participant was the only 17-year-old Alexandra PETRE from Octagon pro Gym in Vienna, who won four gold medals. The tough girl won both finals in + 66 Kg/147 lbs in Low kick and K-1 prematurely.
At the European Congress, the new board of the WKF EUROPA continental federation was re-elected to next 4 years. At the European Championship in Ukraine 2023 the next elections will take place.
