It was a magical day for Team Bahrain at the IMMAF World Championships, an MMA amateur competition that is being held in Abu Dhabi this year. No less than 13 fighters have made their way to the semifinals, guaranteeing that all of the winners from today’s bouts will receive a medal.
Tomorrow the likes of defending champions Sabrina Sousa, Pasha Kharkhachaev, and Ramazan Gitinov will look for a place in the final, to retain the world title in their respective weight classes and add three more gold medals for Team Bahrain.
They will be joined by 10 other winners, namely Rasul Magomedov, Aieza Ramos, Murad Ibragimov, Mohamed Alsameea, Fabiola Silva, Beatriz Consuli, Raiane Guimaraes, Gimbat Magomedov, Kurban Idrisov, and Sultan Omarov.
The 13 athletes will have the opportunity to fight for a gold medal, provided they continue their winning runs - otherwise, they will already have made Bahrain proud by winning a bronze medal.
