The competition ended without any serious injury, which can be thanked to very high-quality judges - more than 70 judges and referees from almost all participated countries (chief referee for tatami sports was Gina Englehardt from Netherland and chief referees for ring sports were Zoran Šimurina from Serbia and Tomislav Novosel from Croatia) who have done their job at a very high level of professionalism. The WAKO organizing committee that arrived in Karlovac has prepared the competition program so well that, despite a very large number of competitors and fights, each day the competition ended around 8 pm.
