The second day of the ongoing Judo Cadet European Championships brought yet more fantastic judo with some clear talents storming through their categories. Most notable were the and -52kg and -57kg gold medallists, Binta NDIAYE (SUI) and Kerem PRIMO (ISR).
Ndiaye brought home the first cadet European title for Switzerland and did so in style, Primo on the other hand kept her contests short and fought for just over three minutes over her five contests of the day. The Israeli might look new given her results but has already began achieving success on a senior level with a bronze in the Zagreb European Open this year. With her older sister Gefen a success on the senior circuit, it may come as little surprise that Kerem is a rising star and already with the experience of a more mature athlete.
We will see her compete again in the near future at the next level in the Junior European Championships in Luxembourg.
After Azerbaijan stole the show yesterday, other nations including Russia rose to the challenge putting a selection of their own medals on the board with the latter taking top place now with three gold and three silver medals.
