Lithuanian gold medallists were Rita Pivoriūnaitė (2 gold), Inga Mikštaitė, Margarita Čiuplytė and Donatas Imbras. Silver medallists were Rūta Brazdžionytė, Andžejus Milevskis, Darius Gudauskas and Lukas Kubilius. Bronze was won by Mindaugas Pavilionis. This year the karate championships were particularly successful for Lithuania. So much so, that in a couple of the finals the competitors were both Lithuanians! The European karate championship in 2011 will take place in Vilnius in April and Lithuania has been selected to host the world karate championship in 2013.
