  • Both Damián Quintero and María Torres reached the semi-finals.

Local karatekas put on a good show at the latest Premier League meeting in Salzburg last weekend as both Damián Quintero and María Torres reached the semi-finals.

Neither, however, made it to the final, but the former returned with a bronze medal having seen off American Gakuji Tozaki in the third-place katas match.

Torres, meanwhile, was beaten in the +68kg kumite third-place match, losing 4-1 to Sofya Berultseva.
