As the anticipated 2017 edition of The World Games is about to start, the Karate heroes set to participate at the multi-sport event are finalising their preparation ahead of the competition. The question among Karate fans around the world is who will succeed at the thrilling tournament in less than two weeks.

The opening ceremony of The World Games 2017 will begin in ten days while the Karate competition is just 14 days away. The karatekas hoping to take gold at the event are intensifying their training sessions so to reach the best form at the two-day Karate showdown in Wroclaw.

Whether at the beach, at the dojo or at the gym, with the karate-gis on or with regular workout attire, some of the frontrunners at The World Games are showing how strong are their wishes of being crowned new champions, and how hard they are working in the days ahead to the start of the tournament.

Karate Stars Antonio Diaz of Venezuela and Alexandra Recchia of France are getting ready while participating at a training camp in Dominican Republic; World ranking leader Damian Quintero of Spain combines intense trainings with being honoured for his outstanding career at home.  Current Gold medallist Sandy Scordo of France is showing her energetic workouts at the gym, just as teammate and world champion Emilie Thouy.

The Brazilian two-time world champion will do a seminar in Sao Paolo before travelling to Wroclaw. Sara Cardin of Italy is another of the stars alternating fierce practices with her responsibilities and promotional activities.

Most of the Asian athletes competing in Poland will get to the tournament after clashing at the Asian Karate Championships. The competition that gathers the top Asian karatekas takes place in Kazakhstan this week, barely a week before The World Games, so competitors from the continent have been working hard to face two of their biggest tournaments of the year.  Many of the delegations participating at the event in Kazakhstan have staged training camps for their national teams, so to reach their best form while working on team building.
