Karate heroes headline thrilling Karate 1-Premier League Rabat


The season of first-class Karate events is set to continue from April 6 to 8 with the anticipated Karate 1-Premier League Rabat. The city in Morocco will host the fourth competition of the year with a top field in action at the Multi-purpose stadium Prince Moulay Abdellah sports hall.

Seventy-two nations will be represented with nearly 600 athletes taking part at the event. Among the athletes to watch, a full line-up of Grand Winners is travelling to Rabat to continue taking the spotlight in the competition. 

Grand Winner Xiaoyan Yin of China will be among the favourites as she reaches the event with the goal of earning her third gold medal this year. The current Asian champion is demonstrating an outstanding level this season since the 24-year-old karateka prevailed in the events in Paris and Dubai. The flashing athlete who was absent in the tournament in Rotterdam will try to get her third consecutive triumph this year in the category of Female Kumite -61kg.  

After ruling the Karate 1-Premier League Dubai, Serap Ozcelik of Turkey hopes to extend her domination of the Female Kumite -50kg category in Rabat. The Turkish Grand Winner aims at reaching the top of the podium in Rabat after following her bronze in Rotterdam barely a month ago. 


Ukraine’s Anzhelika Terliuga will also be among the Grand Winners on site in Rabat, as the European Championships bronze medallist expects to reach the top of the podium in Female Kumite -55kg for the first time this season. 

Also taking part will be Ukraine’s Stanislav Horuna. The European Championships runner-up is being one of the most active and successful karatekas this year and has earned three medals in four international appearances. After finishing in third position in Dubai and Paris and winning gold at the Karate 1-Series A Guadalajara, the fan favourite missed the final day of competition in Rotterdam, so the 29-year-old karateka hopes to bounce back in Rabat. 

The fourth stop of the season will also feature world champions and heroes of the sport on the quest to confirm their places among Karate’s elite. Superstar Rafael Aghayev of Azerbaijan will catch the attention of fans as the five-time world champion will try to improve the third place he achieved in Rotterdam. Meanwhile, Karate Star Alexandra Recchia of France is set to recover from the early elimination at the event in the Dutch city and will also be one of the names to watch in Rabat. 

World champions Giana Lotfy of Egypt, Alisa Buchinger of Austria and Emilie Thouy of France, and Karate Stars Douglas Brose of Brazil and Thomas Scott of USA will also be among the top karatekas headlining the competition in Rabat. 

The final day of action of the Karate 1-Premier League Rabat will be broadcast to a worldwide viewing audience on many TV Networks around the world and on KARATEWORLD.TV.
