James De Los Santos captures milestone 50th e-kata gold

Back in September of last year, James De Los Santos inched closer to world no. 1 status in e-kata with a gold.

Seven months later, he remains unperturbed at the top, with 49 more golds.

The 31-year-old veteran internationalist bagged his 50th gold medal after he dominated Switzerland’s Matias Moreno Dormont, 27.4-26.38, in the finals of the third leg of the Katana Intercontinental League, Monday.

This is the second time De Los Santos has registered a score above 27. He was just 0.04 shy of his personal best, which he set in the second leg just last month.

The two-time ISKF world champion averaged a new high of 19.18 in the technical score and bagged 8.22 on the athletic score to defeat the perennial Swiss foe.

De Los Santos earlier advanced into the gold medal match after topping Pool 2, which includes USA’s Alfredo Bustamante, Norway’s Cornelius Johnsen, and France’s Remi Bonneau, by tallying 25.0 points.

Johnsen and Bustamante ended up winning the bronze medals.
