The Uruguayan Judo Association has been approved as an affiliated member of the South American Judo Confederation.
The Association was already a member of the International Judo Federation and the Pan American Judo Union. The news was confirmed by the Executive Committee of the Confederation, which is chaired by Brazilian President Luiz Pavani.
“This affiliation of the Uruguayan brothers to the South American Judo Confederation strengthens our organization while increasing the quantity and quality of the athletes participating in the South American events, so we welcome them,” he said.
The request to join was made by Cecilia Barrios and José Soca Montero of the AJU, which is also registered with the Ministry of Education and Culture as well as the Ministry of Tourism and Sports in Uruguay.
