Karate 1 Premier League: Anzhelika Terliuga ‘Happy’ To Be A Grand Winner Again

Anzhelika Terliuga is delighted to have been honored with the Grand Winner Award, and unlike the other competitors, the Ukrainian has gotten the acclaim before the Karate 1 Premier League starts in Dublin.

The final event of the season will begin from September 8th-10, 2023, as Ireland hosts it for the first time in its history. And as part of that process, there are several grand winners on show. In addition to Terliuga, Yorgelis Salazar will also keep her Grand Award after having won it last season.

But when it comes to Terliuga, her rise through the ranks has been impressive. Following her fifth-place position in the opening event in Cairo, Egypt, Terliuga won gold in Rabat and Fukuoka. And her record speaks for itself too. She is a 15-time Karate 1-Premier League winner, having won the Grand Winner award for three seasons in a row. In addition, the Ukrainian has been voted the “Best of the Best” in the female (Kumite -55kg) category since 2019.

Reaction To The Award

“I am very happy to be the Grand Winner again. For me, to be the Grand Winner means to get the best possible results ahead of all the best athletes of the world. You can’t be the best of the best if you win just one time; you have to prove it at every competition, and you must be on the top every time,” adds the fan-favourite karateka who won silver at the Olympic Games.

The season was awesome for me. I was able to defend the titles of European champion and Grand Winner, and I also became the new champion of the European Games. I won two gold medals in Fukuoka and Rabat (as I did last year) and I did a lot of seminars all over the world to share my knowledge with athletes.

“With my team, we created a YouTube channel about karate training, and I am looking forward to the next important competitions such as the World Championships. I hope this time I can show my level there better than I did before. I love the gold stripes on my karategi when I am fighting,” Terliuga
