Karate Kicks into the Olympics in Tokyo

Posted by THE SNAKE on August 6, 2021 at 1:50 PM

Hi all,
Karate has kicked it self in to the Olympics and even in this very unusual Olympics in Tokyo it seems to have got of to a fine start .

Day one of the Karate saw the Female Kata's being performed . And in the end it came down to two exponenets . Japan's Kiyou Shimizu and Spain's Sandra Sanchez Jaime. 

Performing the Chatanyara Kata from Shito-Ryu Karate both participants gave their all . But in the end it was the reigning World Champion Sandra Sanchez Jaime of Spain who grabbed the Gold. 

Both performed with intensity and gave impeccable demonstrations of the Kata in question.

Of course us viewers in the UK who rely on the BBc for coverage where given the bare minimum of footage , yes it would have been nice to see the other kata's and sparring but it seems once again the BBC let viewers down with poor coverage of this new entry into the Olympics , but managed to give lengthy coverage of the other new sport of Rock climbing /Boudering..

We will bring more as we view what we can . 
Sertes Nake
