GLOVE FOR THE BEST
The Golden Glove 2016 is over and we can say that it was really a beautiful competition. It was full of atmosphere of friendship and sportiness.
A sport hall was covered with 8 squares and there was a giant screen where audience could see projected images of previous editions. Sport hall was full of numerous competing athletes (about 900 members) from over 18 countries: Austria, Belgium, Holland, England, Czech Republic, France, Greece, Germany, Slovenia, Croatia, Bulgaria, Hungary, Liechstein, Serbia.
Special thanks for the successfull organization goes to those who designed and created the event: Luca Terrin, President of the Veneto Regione FIKBMS EuropcenterOneCamponogara, the National WAKO ITALY board member Raffaele Di Paolo, Club ASD Euro Kickboxing Nicola Traina (member of the organizing committee WAKO) and Oriano de Bei (Italian member of WAKO ITALY referee board ).
The Golden Glove promoters prepared a total prize money of 8,000 Euro and a sponsorship given by global brand TOP TEN which has provided free to all winners a pair of gloves depending on the specialty.
On the competition it was used SPORTDATA system. Sportdata fabulous staff, including brothers Alex and Jhon Engelhardt WAKO Netherland, allowed to display in real time on the web: boards, results, awards and live streaming.
This technology truly represents the future in sports as tatami.
The two-day race began with two internships held respectively by the team of Master Istvan Kiraly for point fighing and Manuel Nordio and Ivan Sciolla for the light, which was attended by about thirty athletes each.
