Venezuelan Antonio Diaz, World Champion in the form of kata in 2010 and 2012, had to settle for bronze on Sunday in the final day of the World Karate Championship held in Bremen (Germany).

The veteran 34 years old karateka added another medal to his extensive record in a discipline (in kata is not fighting an opponent, but movements and actions are measured) in which the new champion is Japanese Ryo Kiyuna, bronze  two years ago in Paris.

Spain, meanwhile, won gold in team kata to win in the final to Egypt 4-1 and the Spanish Yaiza Martin Abello won the bronze medal in the individual event.

These two medals are added to the bronzes made on Saturday by Jagoba Vidarte (+84 kg category) Rocio Sanchez (-50 kg) and Laura Palace (+68 kg).

Brazil finished with two medals, achieved by Douglas Saturday Broze (Gold -60 kg) and Vinicius Rezende (Bronze -67 kg).

The 22 World Championship Karate was dominated by Japan, the historic country of this martial art, with a total of 10 medals, including three gold, a good cover letter for the purpose of China to turn the sport in Olympic inTokyo 2020.
