The Filipino-Japanese karateka shared the good news about her new standing in the annual rankings on social media.

In a Facebook post, Tsukii vowed that she will work even harder to reach the top of the rankings.

“The annual ranking from 2020 to 2021 is the second in the world. This is not a satisfying result for me. I will do my best to be more stronger,” Junna Tsukii wrote in a Facebook post on October 14, 2021.

Tsukii, the Philippines’ 30th Southeast Asian (SEA) Games karate gold medalist, currently bears 2760.00 points from 6 events played in the Karate 1 Premier League for the 2020-2021 season.

In the separate world rankings released by the WKF, Tsukii is ranked 5th overall in the kumite -50kg division.

Junna Tsukii earlier won gold medals from the Invitational Championships and the 2021 Golden Belt Tournament, both held in Serbia.
