Gazprom Pererabotka’s employee Maria Karlova won a gold medal in the World Diamond Cup, an international kickboxing tournament, held from September 21 through 26 in Anapa under the auspices of the World Association of Kickboxing Organizations (WAKO) and the Russian Kickboxing Federation.
High-skilled fighters from 28 European and Asian countries participated in the major A Class kickboxing tournament for amateurs that ranks equally with such well-known global championships as Italy’s Best Fighter and Austrian Classics.
The World Diamond Cup was held in all kickboxing disciplines. Maria Karlova won a gold medal in her age and weight category, in a full contact competition, where punch and kick knockouts are allowed.
“The competition was tough. We fought on a stage instead of a usual ring. In addition to demonstrating our sports skills, we also had to answer questions and parade. I believe that my victory will inspire young people to join this sport and martial arts in general,” said Maria Karlova, painter of the maintenance unit for buildings and facilities at Surgut Condensate Stabilization Plant.
Maria is Russia’s Honored Master of Sports in kickboxing, Master of Sports in boxing, and a repeat European and world champion.
“We are honored to have such an outstanding athlete at our company, which pays great attention to sports and recreational activities. Maria hasn’t engaged in professional sports in the past few years and we hope that her participation in the World Diamond Cup will open a new chapter in her sporting career,” said Alexey Ivantsov, chairman of the primary trade union at Surgut Condensate Stabilization Plant.
