It was very great weekend at the 2018 MTO Provincial TournmTour for YMT!
Matan won both preliminary and semi final bouts (10-11 yr old 40kg c class).
Koen won his semi final bout (10-11 yr old 40 kg c class).
Originally, both boys were separate weight classes. When it turned out that Koen would have no match, we made a hard decision to move Koen into Matan’s. With both boys victorious on day 1, this would mean they would fight for the gold on day 2.
Matan defeated Koen in a very close and technical match. As coaches we weren’t sure who might have taken the fight, but overall we are happy with how they performed. As far as we are concerned, we earned 2 gold’s in the 10-11 yr old 40kg c class division.
Vincent won his match to take the gold for 10-11 yr old 30kg b class division. Close bout against one of Milton’s strongest kids.
Norman lost split decision against a tough competitor, earning silver in the Elite 54 kg c class division. He weathered a storm in round 1, and came back hard in round 2. Round 3 was a war but his opponent had just enough pressure to take the win. Great fight. Overall he showed massive improvement from his last match and represented well with both his technique and heart.
Matan recieved the Sportsmanship award, and PC Patrick (who worked almost every bout this tournament) recieved the Best Technical Official award.
1 very proud team.
