But in the semi finals, a another viking stood in his way, ←and with a perfect headkick, the tables was turned! Tor Andre Kvinge from Bergen, Norway advanced in to the finals- too meet another Swedish fighter – Fredrik Johansson.

.In the men lightweight Sweden brought in a sharp young Erik Hägge. In this division some changes was made in the reason of weight, but no breaks was on when the start was a fact. No one could stop this young Swedish fighter, and 3 division in the men category – clean sweep from the Swedish team.


In the last division, women open category the light and heavy weight was brought together, and from a start field of 8 fighters, the days number was reduced to six. But in the Scottish Open they also have a great treat – fight of the third place. Some known names was in the line up from previous year, and it was ready for a good category. Sara Hägge from Sweden went through the tournament and straight to the top. Beating Kirsten G Smith Bkk England in the final made her champ like her brother in the lightweight! The third place – also Sweden as Dina Kljajic beat Norwegian fighter Irene Skjelfjord, who earlier that day had lost to Hägge. A great,  “come back” from Sara Hägge, after a hard experience in the opening round in the European Open Weight Championship 2014.
