Jonathan González trains in Sweden invited by a world champion

Jonathan González traveled to Gävle as part of his preparation for this year’s competitions

Costa Rica’s national karate fighter Jonathan González is in Sweden, as part of his preparation for the challenges he will be facing this year.

The 26-year-old traveled to Gävle, attending an invitation extended by world karate champion Jonas Rosin, who organized an exclusive camp for elite fighters, and other World, and European champions.

The Tico traveled accompanied by his coach, Mario Bolaños, and among his immediate plans is to defend (for the third time in a row), at the end of this month, his belt in “The Battle of Boardwalk”, one of the most demanding and prestigious tournaments in full contact karate, in Atlantic City, in the United States.

“My coach and I have been looking, in the last year, to attend the most important events around the world. Last year, fortunately, we achieved first place in the United States. Also, for the first time in American history, we finished third at the prestigious British Open. We continue with a great hunger for victory and a great desire to put the name of Costa Rica high in international events”, he mentioned.

In recent weeks, González has undergone a rigorous training routine that includes three daily sessions, exercises to harden the body, physical conditioning for fighters, and refinement of combat technique.
