NZL Performance At Senior Worlds
Thursday, 10 October 2013 10:36

The NZL team of 9 athletes competed at the Senior World Championships in Rio recently.

The individual results were mixed, with the best performance from Ivica Pavlinic (MET WB) who won his way through 3 rounds to achieve a top 16 placing in the -81kg category. Jason Koster (CAN CA) also won his first fight, before losing in the next round. Jason also "backed up" with a silver in an international competition in Santiago, Chile the following week.

The mens team qualified as one of 16 for the World Teams Championship by winning the OJU Teams event. Unfortunately they drew Japan first round, losing 1-4.

Well done to all, and some more valuable World Ranking points in the bank!
