A win is a win for James delos Santos as he pocketed his 10th gold medal in e-kata for this year in the E-Karate World Series Leg 2.
The world's top ranked men's e-kata player got his gold medal via technicality after tournament officials rejected the video entry of his opponent from South Africa.
The judges thumbed down Cerone-Biagioni's performance in the gold medal round, while giving their nod to Delos Santos' entry. Thus, the 30-year-old Pinoy took the victory by forfeiture.
"Nowhere to go but forward!" said Delos Santos.
Delos Santos has been occupying the top spot of the world men's ranking in e-kata since October last year.
