2019 Pan American Championships Results

The 2019 ISKA Pan American Championship was held in the Taekwondo Olympic Arena in Sao Vicenslau, Rio de Janeiro City. Over 600 competitors participated in the tournament. The participation of Mexico, Trinidad & Tobago, Peru, Chile, Colombia, Bolivia, Uruguay, Paraguay, and Argentina made this one of the best events of the year in Brazil.

There was also a professional fight. The Pan American Legends title fight (full contact, -78kg) was won by Altacestes Batista, a famous local fighter and reporter for Brazil’s biggest network. He later met with Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro. Diego Carbone, the Chief of Security for the newly elected Argentinian Vice President, also won a championship (low kick, -88kg).
