Karate Live brings you short interview with Ahmed Zemouri:

What is your overall feeling from the European Championship?

What we can say: This time was the good time. It was incredible to win against this strong Spanish team in the final, but we trained very hard to try to beat them. We did it, in France, with our public, our families, our friends, and all the French team.

We are proud to offer it to our country, ten years after the last European title in this category. The last team to win was Plagnol, Dupont and Neghliz (our actual coach), it was 10 years ago. For us, this symbol is very strong. We hope to continue in progress, we will work very hard now and all the summer for an other goal: to be World Champions. It will be harder than European Championship, but we are determinated, very young and hungry for victory. And the most important thing: we have the dream.

We want to thanks our clubs, our trainers (P. Leprince, Buil, G. Berger, V. Thammavongsa, S. Duperret and R. Montarello), our national coach Ayoub Neghliz. A special thanks to our sponsor Adidas double D, and to their Marketing director N. Poy Tardieu. Now, let's work ! See you soon.

Thank you very much for the interview. We wish you all the best in the future. Karate Live
