Let the Games Begin!

What an exciting day as the Olympic Games officially begin in Tokyo, Japan. We are going to be watching closely since this year we have two local athletes who are competing in Karate’s debut as an official Olympic Sport. Daniel Gaysinsky and Hamoon Derafshipour, both members of the Ontario Karate Federation and the World Karate Federation (the leader in sport karate).

Daniel will be competing under Team Canada after qualifying in Paris, France back in June and Hamoon will be representing the IOC Refugee Team since he came to Canada for an opportunity to compete with his wife as his coach.

Both have worked hard for this opportunity and we can’t wait to watch them bring home the gold for Canada!
