WORLD CADET SILVER MEDALIST STUNS IN SARAJEVO

WORLD CADET SILVER MEDALIST STUNS IN SARAJEVO

Second European Cup of 2016 season finished today in Sarajevo. Seven gold medals of the lightweight categories were spread among five different nations.

Fighting on the three mats in the “Ilidza” sports hall we could enjoy in the action of the men’s -60kg, -66kg, -73kg and women’s -48kg, -52kg, -57kg and -63kg categories.

The most interesting victory today was by 17-year old Croatian Tihea Topolovec who was the youngest winner in Sarajevo. Current World Cadet silver medalist won gold medal in the category -52kg against Irem Korkmaz of Turkey.

Promising teenager didn’t hide her joy after she added first gold from the European Cup for seniors: “For sure I didn’t expect today’s result when I was coming here. This is my first European Cup for seniors ever and I’m really really happy to win gold here. The competition was really hard during the day for me, especially as this is senior level and I’m still cadet. I will also go on few more European Cups and I’m really looking forward to fight in the beginning of April in Croatia, when European Cup will be held in Dubrovnik.”
