Yarmouth Cup and Montreal Open Results!

Over the weekend of June 6-8, 2014, members of the Tsuruoka NL club competed in two tournaments in Nova Scotia and Montreal.

On Friday, the group flew to Halifax, and proceeded to drive to Yarmouth to compete in the Yarmouth Cup on June 7.  The club was represented by Christopher Au, James Thorne, and Steve Thorne.

The results of the Yarmouth Cup are as follows:

Christoper Au – competed in the ages 10-11 advanced division.  He received a gold medal first place for kata, and a gold medal first place in kumite.  As he was the only junior competitor who received two first place finishes, he was awarded an additional honor of Junior Athlete of  the Tournament.

James Thorne – competed in both kata and kumite.  He was awarded silver in kata, and won gold in kumite.

Steve Thorne – competed in both kata and kumite.  He was awarded a silver medal in kumite.

A successful tournament results for all three competitors, but their work was not finished.  Once the tournament was over in Yarmouth, it was a quick exit, and long drive back to Halifax, where they boarded a plane, and flew to Montreal to compete in the Montreal Open on Sunday, June 8th.

The three competed again, and the results  of the Montreal Open were as follows:

Christoper Au – won a bronze in kata, and a silver in kumite.  It is important to note that Christopher was tied for first place, but since the Montreal Open uses a points scoring system instead of the WKF flags scoring system, Christopher was dropped to third place as he had the lowest score for kata.  The kumite was single elimination, where he won 3 of his 4 bouts, but lost the gold medal match by a score of 1-0.

James Thorne – did not place, but gained valuable experience for upcoming tournaments.

Steve Thorne – did not place, but gained valuable experience for upcoming tournaments.

On behalf of the entire Tsuruoka NL family, we would like to say congrats on a job well done.  You three represented the club, and the province outstandingly, and we are proud of your accomplishments!  Keep up the great work!
