Subrina Richards wants four world titles this year

first_imgJamaica’s top-rated female martial artist, Subrina Richards, who notched a triple-double of international gold medals last season, has been pointed at four major world championships this season by her handlers, setting an unbelievably high bar for 2017. The lanky 20-year-old will start her international season by defending double gold medals, starting with June’s International Sport Kickboxing Association (ISKA) Amateur Member Association World Championships in Greece. In July, she takes her show to the International Sport Karate Association’s United States Open in Orlando, Florida, again defending continuous and points sparring gold medals won last year. It gets tougher in October when Richards travels to Ireland for the International Taekwondo Federation World Cup and even more so a month later when she debuts at the World Association of Kickboxing Organisation’s (WAKO) World Championships in Mexico. Despite facing a gruelling campaign, Richards said that she wants to set the bar so high that “whoever is behind will have a far way to top that”. “I want to raise the bar, do something nobody has ever done. I won four international world titles last year – the double at WAKO Pan Am Champs, ISKA World Champs in Germany, and US Open in Orlando,” she pointed out. Richards’ coach, Jason McKay, described her 2016 run as perfect, pointing out that it was the first time any Jamaican fighter, of any gender, had won six gold medals in three major tournaments in one year. “She has been on a run of four straight double gold, 2015-16. She had also won two gold medals at the 2015 US Open. This year will be tougher. Let’s see what she’s made of,” he said. GRUELLING CAMPAIGNlast_img read more
