This past weekend saw the running of Turkey’s annual Vehbi Emre & Hamit Kaplan event. Arriving immediately on the heels of the Wladyslaw Pytlasinski Memorial in Poland, Vehbi Emre largely received second billing due to Pytlasinski’s “Ranking Series” designation.

But the degree of participation in Istanbul was anything but second-tier. Among the gold medalists were hometowner Kerem Kamal (60 kg, TUR), multi-time medal winner Artem Surkov (67 kg, RUS), and two-time World Champion Musa Evloev (97 kg, RUS). But — those names represented a small sample size of what was available in the brackets. Both Lorincz brothers, Mirambek Ainagulov (60 kg, KAZ), Azkhol Makhmudov (77 kg, KAZ), and… Aleksander Chekhirkin (77 kg, RUS) also entered the fray. There were plenty of other renowned characters involved, as well; plus, Vehbi Emre brought forth a significant Iranian presence, which easily elevated its status. Pytlasinski got the bright lights, but Vehbi Emre surpassed it in terms of legitimate star power.

Vehbi Emre Notes

  • Ainagulov, who was to face Kamal in the semifinal before bowing out with an injury, had not been thought of as a possible Tokyo entrant considering Elmurat Tasmuradov is the one who qualified 60 kilograms (at the ’19 Worlds) and is widely-regarded as KAZ’s #1. However, Ainagulov — who has competed as high as 66 kilos in his career — making 60 (granted +2 kg) in Turkey does raise eyebrows, even if the roster isn’t expected to change.
  • Surkov defeated ’16 World Champion Balint Korpasi (HUN) 3-1 in the 67 semis, a passive-gut responsible for the margin. The popular Russian went on to decision Hossein Assad Kolmati (IRI) in the bracket final.
  • Tamas Lorincz (77 kg, HUN) was downed in the quarterfinal by Demeu Zhadraev (KAZ) 4-3 but managed to earn bronze with a textbook tech over Serkan Akkoyun (TUR). One (Olympic) weight higher, Viktor Lorincz was edged by Vaag Margarian (RUS) in the 87 quarters before coming back for bronze with a pair of workmanlike decisions at the expense of Sosruko Kodzkov (RUS) and Nursultan Tursynov (KAZ), respectively.
  • Evloev trucked Hungarian Olympian Alex Szoeke early in the second period of the 97-kilo final, capping a 3-0 day with all three victories coming via tech.
  • Turkey won the tournament with 192 points over Russia (177 pts). TUR had 45 entrants. Russia had 15.

Chekhirkin 1-&-Done

’17 World champ Chekhirkin VSU’ed Erkan Ergen (TUR) in the qualification round and then exited the tournament by injury defaulting to eventual champ Furkan Bayrak (TUR). With Abuyazid Mantsigov having prevailed in Poland last week and two-time Olympic Champion Roman Vlasov placing third, Russia’s guy for 77 kilograms in Tokyo, at press time, still appears up in the air. RUS head coach Gogi Koguashvili had yet to comment on the next step in the (presumably ongoing) selection process.

Three Rosters

The weeks ahead will give way to an increasing number of national federations formally announcing their rosters for the 2020 Tokyo Olympics. Several countries — such as Denmark, Sweden, Croatia, and Germany — have maintained all along that those who qualified their respective weight categories will automatically make the cut. Japan also made the same declaration prior to Nur-Sultan ’19, a procedural wrinkle that certainly worked out in Kenichiro Fumita‘s (60 kg) favor.

Counting Japan, which secured 77 kilograms at the Asian Qualifier, is a done deal with only two competitors. Hungary’s roster for Tokyo has been known for some time, and now Iran has agreed on their five-man delegation with just over a month until the Games begin.

    I oversee a vape shop submission site and we have had a posting from a vape store in the USA that likewise sells CBD items. A Month later on, PayPal has written to use to claim that our account has been limited and have requested us to take away PayPal as a payment method from our vape store submission site. We do not offer for sale CBD goods like CBD oil. We solely offer promotion and marketing services to CBD companies. I have taken a look at Holland & Barrett– the UK’s Reputable Wellness Retail store and if you take a good peek, you will see that they offer for sale a relatively comprehensive stable of CBD products, primarily CBD oil and they also happen to take PayPal as a settlement method. It seems that PayPal is applying contradictory standards to many different firms. As a result of this stipulation, I can no longer take PayPal on my CBD-related internet site. This has restrained my payment possibilities and right now, I am heavily reliant on Cryptocurrency payments and direct bank transfers. I have talked with a lawyer from a Magic Circle law office in The city of london and they said that what PayPal is undertaking is completely unlawful and inequitable as it ought to be applying an uniform benchmark to all firms. I am yet to check with an additional attorney from a US law firm in The city of london to see what PayPal’s legal position is in the United States. Meanwhile, I would be extremely appreciative if anyone here at targetdomain could offer me with different payment processors/merchants that deal with CBD firms.
