In this weekend, we participated in the strong European Cup in Celje, Slovenia. We had two players in action.

On the first day Anders Hvidkær -73kg went 0-1 he could not overcome his opponent from Hungary and finished theday unfortunatly early.

On Sunday it was Emilie Sook -70kg to step on the mat. Emilie finished 5th after going 2-2 on the day.

Emilie started the day against Zupancic from Canada, former nr 1 on the WRL and later this summer participating in the Olympic Games in Rio, Emilie could not beat Zupancic and was relegated to the repechage, here she won convincingly her next two fights by ippon throwing both of them first for wazari and finishing in newaza. For the bronze she faught a Russian player and end up losing in a tight match 2-1 on shidos.

Congratiolations to her.

Best regards, Miguel Ogando Lopes, Head Coach
