Grand Winners Damian Quintero and Gogita Arkania receive awards at #Karate1Matosinhos


The ceremony was headed by WKF President Antonio Espinós and was held in Matosinhos after the celebration of the Karate 1-Premier League event in the Portuguese city. The two Karate Stars received the commemorative trophy and diploma that recognise them as the “Best of the Best” of the year in their respective categories.

Spain’s Damian Quintero won the Grand Winner award after leading the category of Male Kata in the last two editions of the Karate 1-Premier League. The current WKF World Ranking leader won medals in all five appearances in Karate 1-Premier League events in 2020 and 2021, including gold medals in the 2020 Karate 1-Premier League Dubai and the 2021 Karate 1-Premier League Istanbul.

Damian Quintero said:

“Being the Grand Winner is a big responsibility for me. Staying on top requires keeping a constant high level throughout the season. On the other hand, the Grand Winner award is very satisfying because it means that all our goals of the season were achieved and that our hard work paid off.”
