The World Karate Federation (WKF) is pleased to announce the first 40 athletes to qualify for the Olympic Games Tokyo 2020, where Karate will be making its historic Olympic debut this summer.
Thirty-two places were allocated to the four highest-ranked athletes per gender in each of the Olympic categories, while Japan was allotted a host quota of eight athletes, one per category.
The full list follows:
The most emotional moment of the finals on Day 4 of EuroKarate2021 will feature Rafael Aghayev of Azerbaijan. The superstar karateka lost his mother just one month before the start of the European Karate Championships.
“I am sure that during the final, my mother will be looking after me from heaven,” said Aghayev in tears after qualifying for the final.
A five-time World champion, eleven-time European title-holder, and arguably one of Karate’s biggest stars, Rafael Aghayev claimed the ticket to the final of Male Kumite -75kg following a 2-0 victory over Noah Bitsch of Germany.
The World Karate Federation has partnered with MSM PR & Communications to deliver a successful communications strategy for the sport’s historic debut at the Olympic Games Tokyo 2020.
MSM will help the WKF’s Communications Department to shape the narrative of Karate’s first Olympic appearance, while also assisting in the delivery of traditional and digital media in the lead up to and during the Games.
“We know the WKF team well from past events so it is quite a natural fit for MSM to join forces with the federation for this significant Olympic milestone,” said MSM CEO Andrew Mitchell. “Together we will tell the stories of the sport and especially the athletes as karate returns ‘home’ for what is arguably the biggest moment in the federation’s history.”
