Hedvig Karakas returns at the tatami in new category

2020 European Champion Hedvig Karakas (31) will make her comeback at the Grand Slam in Tel Aviv.

After a long absence she is back on the tatami and ready to challenge herself in a new category – U63kg.

“After my long illness last year, I had to build myself from scratch, but I feel like I managed to get in very good physical condition”, said Karakas.

“I look at the Grand Slam with no expectation and observe the field as I have been troubling for a long time and this time I will be fighting in a new weight class of under 63 kilograms. It is an extra motivation for the national team to train together every week, we can encourage each other, and I try to learn as much as possible.”

Karakas is an excellent physical condition and will step on the mat in Tel Aviv on Friday.

Karakas has been preparing from the Tata International Training Camp and was excited to make her comeback.
