Yonatan wins Gold at the National Karate Champs!

Posted: 14-Aug-2019 by Maccabi NSW

Last weekend Yonatan Freund, the Maccabi NSW & National Junior Sportsman of the Year for 2018, represented NSW in the National Karate Championships in Launceston, Tasmania.  With over 600 athletes, it remains the most important event in the Australian Karate calendar.

Over the two days, Yonatan won two gold medals and one bronze medal. In his most important event, his own division, he won gold, with a dominant display.  He unfortunately lost the semi final in the Open event, but came back to win bronze. 

Finally, the 3 top fighters from each State then fight off in the teams event, and his NSW team won gold. 

Well done Yonatan!
