With Olympism, Karate of Uzbekistan woke up. One of his top fighters ? Dastonbek Otabolaev. With his 3 podiums in Karate 1 (gold in Shanghai in 2019, silver in Halle in 2017 and Rabat in 2018), the Tashkent champion does not (yet) have the records that reflects his talent. This for a good reason ! He fights in -75 kg, the most competitive category in the karate World, with among others his two living legends that are Aghayev and Busa. For the time being unqualified for the Tokyo Olympics, Dastonbek Otabolaev is among the serious contenders for the podium in the upcoming qualification tournament.
