Baku, September 10, AZERTAC
“I believe that the World Judo Championship will be excellently organized by Azerbaijan,” said sports director of the Spanish Judo Federation Sara Alvarez Menendez.
“Our judokas have been preparing for this competition for a long time. They have trained very well both technically and tactically. Each of them aims to gain medals in the world championship,” Menendez noted.
She also mentioned that they will try to claim medals in all weight categories: “This is difficult but not impossible. All Spanish judokas are valuable for me. Therefore, I cannot say who I expect to win a medal.”
Sara Alvarez Menendez also praised the Azerbaijani judokas, describing them as strong and hard-working.
The World Judo Championships 2018 will be held in Baku for the first time on September 20-27 as decided by the International Judo Federation Executive Committee at its meeting in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.
