Ukraine’s #1-ranked Para taekwondo fighter Anton Shvets returns home with two gold medals after besting the competition at the IWAS World Games in Vila Real de Santo Antonio, Portugal and the European Open in Sofia, Bulgaria this month. The 2015 world champion is sure to increase his lead in the men’s under-75kg K43 division over Kazakhstan’s Nurlan Dombayev, who bested the Ukrainian at the world championships in October. The top two ranked fighters in the division gain automatic qualification to the 2020 Paralympic Games in Tokyo, Japan, where the sport will be making its debut. Compatriot Vika Marchuk, the reigning world champion and #1-ranked fighter in the women’s under-49kg K43 division, also captured gold at the European Open.
