One week to memorable #KarateTenerife2017

2017-10-18

In just one week, the best young karatekas in the world will gather in a historic and record-breaking edition of the World Cadet, Junior & U21 Championships. As the future stars of the sport are getting ready to make their debut in the event to be held in Tenerife, young competitors are setting their eyes on the world crown; the stakes are even higher in the junior competition since the qualification to the Youth Olympic Games will also be at play.

The tenth edition of the World Cadet, Junior & U21 Championships will be held in Tenerife from October 25 to 29. Over 1700 competitors from 109 countries have confirmed their participation at the event. The tournament to take place at Santiago Martin sports hall in the idyllic city of the Canary Islands is poised to break all organisation and participation records and is aimed to create a new era of the sport for the young karatekas.

ATHLETES TAKING STEPS TO YOUTH OLYMPIC GAMES  

The 2017 World Cadet, Junior & U21 Championships will have even more relevance if possible since Tenerife will be one of the main stops in the race to Buenos Aires 2018. The points to be allocated in the junior competition in Tenerife will play a fundamental role in the quest of young athletes to take the top positions in the WKF Olympic Standings. This ranking will give the hopeful promising karatekas the opportunity to get the tickets to the Youth Olympic Games.

All eyes will be then set on athletes participating in the junior kumite categories. The quest to Buenos Aires 2018 will catch the attention of fans on Thursday and Friday when the medallists and new world champions eligible to take part in the Youth Olympic Games will be proclaimed.

The powerhouses of the sport will try to show their potential by placing their top representatives in the race to Buenos Aires 2018. Egypt, Japan and Indonesia dominated the kumite categories of the Cadet and Junior competitions two years ago at the 2015 edition of the event in Jakarta after winning three gold medals respectively.
