Barbados collected four more gold medals at the International Karate Daigaku World Cup at the Garfield Sobers Sports Complex on Saturday.
Competing in the team enbu segment in front of a home crowd, they gained medals in both the Male and Female 12-15 divisions, the Male 20-39 category and the Female 50-plus competition.
Barbados’ medal count stands at seven gold, having gained three on Day 1.
Team captain Corey Greaves said the team took time to prepare for the enbu category.
“Barbados did very well. We got four gold, and loud applause from the audience as well, because, unlike the restrictions of the strict karate moves, enbu allows you to express yourself with a bit more flair,” he said.
The Female 12-15 division saw a close competition between Barbados, Trinidad and Tobago, and Guyana, which finished in that order, each separated from the other by a mere 0.1. (RG)
