15/06/2014, EC Slovenia

In the weekend of 14-15 of June, the senior team participated in the European Cup in Slovenia, it was a competition where big teams from germany and ukraine were present with alot of fighters in all weight classes, and where the -23 national team from russia was also present.

For us we had Nete in -63kg on her comeback to the competion at european level, but unfortunatly she could not overcome her opponent, in a fight where she was better, but was thrown for a yuko and could not turn the result on her favour. Also in this competition participated Benjamin Troest in -81kg, and he also lost his first bout, being therefore eliminated from the competition.

We saw good judo in Slovenia, very good conditions and we have in mind to take a big team next year with us again, taking our last year juniors with.

For the rest of the summer waits a though program for the senior team, with a EC in Germany, and 4 training camps, before we finally travel to Russia for the World Championships.

Head coach Miguel Ogando Lopes
