Filipino-Japanese Karateka Junna Tsukii won another medal just one month after winning gold at the 30th Southeast Asian Games.
Tsukii won bronze at the Kumite 50kg event for women in Karate 1 Serie A, an Olympic qualification, in Santiago, Chile on Sunday.
The 28-year-old Tsukii secured the bronze medal after a 2-1 win against Shara Hubrich from Germany.
Tsukii missed a shot at gold after falling 5-7 on Yorgelis Salazar from Venezuela.
Serap Ozcelik from Turkey dominated the category after rejecting Salazar 7-3 in the final.
Tsukii is looking for a ticket to the Tokyo Olympics later this month when she shows off her skills in the Karate1 Premier League in Paris, France, January 24-26.
Tsukii is not only a gold medalist at SEA Games, but also a bronze medalist at Asian Games 2018.
