MANILA – Filipino karateka James de Los Santos added three more golds to his total haul for the year after ruling three tournaments, whose results of the finals were released on Tuesday.

Moments later, the result of De Los Santos' battle against Switzerland's Matias Domont for the 2nd Euro Grand Prix gold came out with the former prevailing, 25.3-23.6.
De Los Santos capped the day with the gold in the Rome International ENDAS Karate Cup, beating American opponent Alfredo Bustamante in the final, 25.1-24.
