One of the biggest rivals and names of karate history, and not just the female lightweight category, are definitely Alexandra Recchia of France and Turkey’s very best Serap Ozcelik. Their domination in -50 kg category is very hard to stop so it is not surprising they are meeting over and over. This will be Alexandra’s 3rd and Serap’s 5th European final.
In the elimination, Recchia defetead Montenefro’s Anja Jovic, Azerbaijan’s Nurana Aliyeva and Serbia’s Jelena Milivojcevic, while Ozcelik defetead Mariya Koulinkovitch of Belarus, Romania’s Alexandra Pop and last year’s European Champion Bettina Plank.
This year Plank will be fighing for the bronze against Koulinkovitch, so will Milivojcevic against Jovic.
In the latest encounters, Recchia was more successful including vitories at the last European Championship in Istanbul, where Ozcelik lost from Recchia in the quarterfinal, and this year’s Paris Open in January when she deteated her in front of her home crowd in the semifinal. Will the French crowd and home ground help her again against her biggest rival, we will see on tomorrow’s final.
