The world championship has come to the end, emotions have a little calmed down. Who was the main surprise of the competition? ()
In the female categories there were sensations. In the lightest category, the sportswoman from Turkey Esra Kiraz overcame Snezhana Babaeva on both hands, reclaiming the defeat of the last championship and became the champion. In the category of 55 kg everyone expected one of the three favorites - Victoria Ilyushina, Alina Volkova or Dimitrina Dimitrova at the highest pedestal stage, but the girls from Kazakhstan had other plans. Tatyana Verina won each of them in the dominant style and became a champion in both hands. Let's note that on the left hand the second one was also the representative of Kazakhstan - Aigerim Karamanova. It seems that new top members have appeared in this complicated category.
In categories up to 60 and 65 kg, the main favorites confirmed our expectations and took gold medals - Ekaterina Afonina and Fia Risek respectively.
In the category of up to 70 kg, Dmitri Trubin's wife, Tatiana, pulled for the first time, and she showed a very good fight. Tatiana defeated many strong rivals and lost only to the incredible Gabriela Vasconcelos, who once again became the world champion. Two silver - this is an excellent debut for Tatiana at the Worls.
But in the category of up to 80 kg we saw a big sensation, in preliminary fights on the left hand the unconditional favorite of the category Irina Makeeva unexpectedly lost to the junior from Kazakhstan - Oksana Pismennaya. It seemed that Irina would come out in the finals and put everything in order, but Oksana again overcame her and this, perhaps, is one of the biggest sensations lately.
