30th Austrian Open in Innsbruck – a review

Posted by

At the “30. International Austrian Open 2021 ”on June 12th in Innsbruck

numerous WKF teams were there again

Austrian Alexandra PETRE und Shana HEGGLIN from Switzerland

Participants from Germany, Hungary, Ukraine, Switzerland and of course Austria were each with many teams at the start. This Austrian Open will go down in history as “post Corona”.

Unfortunately, many clubs at home and abroad have also canceled at short notice due to Corona.

Nevertheless, around 100 fighters from five nations were present in Innsbruck.

We would like to particularly highlight the Swiss Shana HEGGLIN from Team Phönix, who not only won her own class – 60 kg against teammate Chiara TSCHOPP in the kick-light.

In addition, she faced the Austrian multiple European champion Alexandra PETRE from Octagon pro Gym in Vienna in the open class + 60 kg in the kick light and showed a great performance against the significantly heavier and larger Petre.

Honor and thanks for her coach Roland HATT and respect for Shana!

The Swiss champions from Team SPARTA and DEZDO Gym also showed a great performance and brought medals from Innsbruck.

German teams such as KAMPFSTARK in Munich, LIONS FIGHTCLUB or MAKKABI and the GLADIATORS WAGHÄUSEL team were also able to place themselves TOP.
