SIXTEEN JUNIORS are among a squad of 31 Barbadian karatekas who will compete at the 2015 International Karate Daigaku World Cup and Camp in Toronto, Canada, from July 14 to 20.

Being hosted at Ryerson University, the international event will feature hundreds of highly rated fighters from around 30 regions and countries.

The Barbadian competitors are mainly drawn from the local Shotokan Karate Club and the Queen’s College Club, and administrators believe the exposure will play an important role in the development of the young competitors.

President of the Barbados Karate Association Paul Bernstein, as well as team captain Corey Greaves, said they were thankful to Massy United Insurance for their assistance in taking the contingent to the international event in Toronto. (BB)
