Ai Tsunoda Roustant (ESP) is already an accomplished judoka. At the Junior World in Olbia on Friday the Spanish super talent does it again and claimed the world title at senior level. She also already won a bronze medal in a Grand Prix on the World Judo Tour.
It was 27 years ago since Spain had a women’s junior world champion in Ursula Martin.
“Yes I have won and yes I’m very happy but I made too many mistakes today; I felt them too many times. I need to solve that problem but I hope it also means that I can still progress”, Roustant said.
Tsunoda was ready to add one important line to her prize list, as she entered the final of the -70kg category against Croatian Lara Cvjetko (CRO), who was ready to follow in the footsteps of her illustrious teammate Barbara Matic, senior world champion last June in Budapest, reminds Judo Inside.
