PETALING JAYA: The national karate squad marked their first competitive stint in Europe with four bronze medals in the K1 Slovenia World Cup last weekend.
The bronze medals were contributed by seniors Nisha Alagasan (women’s kumite below 55kg) and Nur Eleena Malik (women’s kumite below 50kg) while back-up squad exponents Sanjay Kumaran (men’s kumite 75kg) and R. Govinash (men’s kumite below 60kg) also did well to make the podium. National coach R. Puvaneswaran was happy with the performance of the exponents in their first stint in Europe.
“We brought five elite and four back-up exponents to Europe. There were a few exponents who did not go as they are still undergoing rehabilitation.
“Our performance was satisfactory. We also took part in the Dutch Open the week before but did not win anything.
“The training stint in Europe is part of the preparation for the Asian Championships in Dubai in September,” he said.
The exponents will remain in Europe as they will head to Budapest to spar with the Hungarians this week.
