Colombia hopes to finish in top five of Pan American karate championship
Venezuela is dominating the competition at the Junior Pan American Karate Championships, which is being held in Medellín and comes to a close today. 80 competitors from 23 countries are fighting for medals in 50 categories.
As of yesterday, 15 gold medals had already been awarded, and eight of them went to the Venezuelans. Colombia earned two, as did Chile, while Mexico, Argentina, and the United States got one each.
The head of the Colombian Karate Federation, Pilar López, said Medellín was chosen as host because of its venues, hotels, and the fact that it’s a “kind city.”
