Pinoy kata player wins 2 more golds

James de Los Santos took home two more gold medals in the virtual kata game as he is now set to become the new world number one.

 

De Los Santos ruled the E-Karate Games and the Euro Grand Prix, which put him in a good position to overtake Portugal’s Eduardo Garcia at the top spot in the world rankings.

 

He defeated Murillo Alves of Brazil, 24.3-23.3, in the lone showdown in the Shotokan e-Kata Division of the E-Karate Games.

 

De Los Santos then beat Silvio Cerone-Biagoni, 24.6-24.3, in the Euro Grand Prix.

 

In the Euro Grand Prix, De Los Santos first beat Kevin Petry of Luxembourg in the quarterfinals before edging Domont Moreno of Switzerland in the semifinals.

 

He told the Philippine News Agency that his top finish in the Euro Grand Prix would be enough to take the world number one rank away from Garcia, who did not participate in both events. (PNA)
