MANILA, Philippines – Filipina-Japanese Karateka Junna Tsukii snared her second straight bronze medal on Sunday, January 26, in the 2020 Karate 1 Premier League Paris Leg in France.

The 2019 Southeast Asian Games gold medalist earned her second bronze in the female -50kg kumite event after outlasting Venezuelan Yorgelis Salazar, 2-0, who beat her in the recent Series A tournament in Chile.

The Fil-Japanese karateka can earn a continental slot to the Tokyo 2020 Olympics if she earn more points and ranks first in Asia before the direct qualification deadline in April.

The Philippine Sports Commission fully supports the country’s top karateka in her bid to earn a lot for the July 2020 Tokyo Olympics.

After winning the SEA Games gold, Tsukii was controversially bullied by national coach Okay Arpa – an issue that she confessed in social media. (Lloyd Tagbago/IAMIGO/Currentph.com)
