MANILA, Philippines – Twenty-two gold medals and counting.

Filipino World No 1 online karateka James delos Santos added another feather in his cap by reigning supreme in the Athlete’s e-Tournament Series 2 on Tuesday.

The 30-year-old delos Santos won over Switzerland’s Matias Moreno Domont, 25.4-24.6, to claim his 22nd mint while strengthening his iron grip of the World No. 1 rankings that he has held since last month.

“We’ll do our best to continue to widen the gap,” said delos Santos.

The feat came a day after the two-time Southeast Asian Games bronze medalist came through with a two-gold haul in the Okinawa e-Tournament World Series and Nox Dojo Markham City Open.
