There will be an interesting entry at the Grand Prix of Zagreb. A World Champion that you might not expect anymore – Cuban world champion Asley Gonzalez.
He acquired Romanian citizenship and is immediately added to the team of the Grand Prix in Zagreb, the first IJF World Tour event since the Olympic Games in Tokyo, reports Judo Inside.
With three participants at the Olympic Games Romania couldn’t cheer too loud with only five matches for the participants Andreea Chitu U52kg, the brave Alexandru Raicu fighting U73kg and heavyweight Vladut Simionescu who survived one round but lost his second Olympic contest.
It is a privilege to see former Cuban judoka Asley Gonzalez the 2013 world judo champion, in the team for Croatia’s blockbuster event. You can wonder if you can bet online at skrill online casino with Asley Gonzalez in the starting grid.
It would be a risky bet in his new category U100kg. Definitely an interesting country switch for the Cuban fighter made possible by the Romanian Judo Federation. Through the Ministry of Youth and Sports, the Federation made a request for the citizenship of Gonzalez, which was resolved by a Government Decision.
On August 9, Asley Gonzalez took the oath of allegiance.
