Tanel Paabo won the karate Estonian Open competition at Tallinna sports hall this weekend, 16.01.2016.
He won the men’s heavyweight +84kg category. Tanel’s says that the competition was quit small because of the number of competitors but however there were 3 Scandinavia competitors (edit: Estonia, Finland and Sweden) who are their countrys number one fighters and so he was glad to see that he is still one of the best in Scandinavia.
On 2016 year Paabo has already won 4 gold medals and the next competitions will be Juniors European Championships, adult European Championships and he will finish 2016 with the World Championships.
We wish to Tanel Paabo all the best and good luck with the Championships and also congratulations for the good start of the year!
