The Judo family returned to Israel for its biggest event yet, the World Judo Masters!

And the locals were ecstatic!

The President of the IJF Marius Vizer opened the historic event, alongside the Mayor of Jerusalem, Moshe Lion and Moshe Ponti, the President of the Israel Judo Association.

They witnessed young star Shirine Boukli take her biggest title yet with a clever sacrifice technique, before taking the time to take a selfie with the local judo fans, giving them a memory they will never forget.

Meanwhile, Olympic Champion of the under 48 class, Krasniqi of Kosovo, defeated Olympic and World Medallist Chelsie Giles today in the under 52kg category. 

She took the win with a lightning fast o-uchi-gari, securing a momentous 4th Master’s title.

Home hopes for Gold today, rested on the powerful shoulders of Baruch Shmailov, and throughout the day, he put on his usual explosive display of Judo, with some absolutely enormous techniques.
