Ogurahama Hyuga-shi, Miyazaki, Japan – Wednesday, 23 October 2019 – Ketut Agus (IND) has won the Men’s Junior Tour 1,000 WJC Asia Championship event last Sunday, 20th October 2019, claiming victory in the final bout against Arashi Murata (JPN) at Ogurahama Hyuga-shi, Miyazaki, Japan. He earned massive wins that helped claim his respective Regional Pro Junior Titles – and a spot to the WSL Junior Championships.
Hailing from Bali, Ketut Agus looked in fine form in the QS 1,000 before a Round 4 exit but took that fire into the WJC Asia Championship to claim a massive win over Japanese contingent Arashi Murata, Monnono Yahagi, and Shohei Kato. The win sends Ketut Agus, alongside Murata and Yahagi who finished runner-up and third-place respectively, to the WSL Junior Championships as he will contest against the best competitors 18-and-under from around the world beginning November 26 – December 1.
“I’m so happy to win this junior event and now I’m to WSL Junior Championships next month, I can’t believe it,” Ketut said. “Thank you for all the support from the crowd who were cheering me on and to Hyuga for having us. This was a great event and I couldn’t be more stoked.”
Congratulations to our 2019 WJC Asia Championship Ketut Agus and good luck for WSL Junior Championship in Taiwan next month!
