Croatia won two senior gold medals on the opening day of the World Taekwondo President’s Cup at the Telekom Dome in Bonn.

Kristina Tomic, winner of this year's Slovenia Open and Ukraine Open, set the Croatians on their way to a double triumph courtesy of a 1-0 victory over France’s Floriane Liborio in the women’s under 49 kilogram final.

It was completed by Lovre Brecic, who beat Azerbaijan’s Mahammad Mammadov to the men’s under 63kg crown on golden point after a 1-1 draw in regulation time.

Serbia’s Milos Gladovic came away with the men’s under 58kg title after defeating Belgium’s Salaheddine Bensaleh 6-5, while Turkey’s Hatice Kubra Ilgun profited from Belgian Indra Craen’s withdrawal to top the women’s under 57kg podium.

Despite failing to win top honours at senior level, there was success for hosts Germany in both the junior and cadet competitions.

Ioanna Andreopoulou beat Greece’s Agni Danai Chioti 3-2 in the junior women’s under 49kg final, while Evelyn Buntusch defeated fellow German Henriette Deisinger 6-2 in the cadet women’s under 29kg showdown.

Competition in Bonn is scheduled to continue until April 10 with all gold medallists given direct access to the 2016 European Taekwondo Union (ETU) Championships in Montreux in Switzerland.

More than 1,500 athletes are competing at the event, which is sanctioned by the World Taekwondo Federation but is organised by the ETU.
