James De Los Santos clinches 45th e-kata gold in record fashion

Top e-kata karateka James De Los Santos is not yet done.

The 30-year-old veteran internationalist bagged his ninth gold of the year — and his 45th since 2020 — with a new personal best of 27.44 against the 26.32 of Switzerland’s Matias Moreno Dormont in the second leg of Katana Intercontinental League, Monday.

The two-time Southeast Asian Games bronze medalist earlier scored 26.64 in the first leg of the said tournament just the previous month.

De Los Santos got an average of 19.04 in the technical score and a huge 8.40 in the athletic score to register his best score ever in e-kata.

The two-time ISKF champion earlier topped his pool, leading the pack with 24.72 points, to book his place in yet another gold medal match.

De Los Santos edged out a perennial rival in USA Alfredo Bustamante, who scored 24.36, with the athletic scores making the difference.

The rest of the pool includes David Brierly of England, who scored 22.26, and France’s Remi Bonneau with 20.6.
