MANILA, Philippines — Malapit nang maabot ni Pinoy karateka James Delos Santos ang kanyang misyon.

Umabot na sa 11-gold medals ang koleksyon ni Delos Santos matapos talunin si Matias Moreno Domont ng Switzerland, 5-0 sa final round ng Tokaido Maribor Open E-Tournament.

Dahil sa kanyang tagumpay ay inilapit ng 30-anyos na dating national team member ang kanyang sarili kay World No. 1 Eduardo Garcia ng Portugal.

Lumaki sa 7,105 points ang nakolekta ni Delos Santos bilang No. 2 sa E-Tournament Karate Rankings habang may 8,125 points naman si Garcia.

“I just need a few more tournaments to reach No. 1, the grind must go on,” wika ng Cebuano karateka.

Samantala, nanalo rin ng gold medal si Fatima A-Isha Lim Hamsain, estudyante ni Delos Santos, laban kay Jelizaveta Vasiljeva ng Latvia, 4-1 sa U15 women’s kata division.

Nakuntento naman si Julia Marcos sa bronze medal sa U21 women’s kata division.

“Congrats to both of you girls! Continue training and competing because your performance will become stronger over time,” ani Delos Santos. “Thank you God for this opportunity, and keeping us healthy and safe.”
