Jenna Horto earned a bronze medal in the atomweight 47.6 kg (105 lbs) division of the 2018 IMMAF-WMMAA Unified World Championships. The Finn lost a split decision (28-29, 29-28, 29-28) in the semifinal bout to Oksana Pashkova (Ukraine) after winning her first bout.
“I had an ankle injury about 6-7 weeks ago, which bothered me a bit while i was training for a World championships. i did the work as best as i could at the time and i did want to take a gold medal back to home. how ever i lost my second fight whit split against an experienced girl from Ukraine. I lost because i did couple stupid mistakes. so there wasn’t anything really difficult or new for me, and that is the thing what not only make me hungrier but annoys me aswell because I could win that fight also, easily. No excuses now, i’m back at the gym and i will be a world champion next year.” comments Horto to MMAViking.com.
