The current world champion in the -48 kg category, Daria Bilodid, has been dethroned by the best, the Kosovar judoka Distria Krasniqi. The two-time IJF World Masters winner will be looking for her third title in Doha next month, but for now she can enjoy her reign in the -48kg category. Especially after an extraordinary performance at the “Grand Slam” in Budapest, which was the first tournament held before the pandemic, KosovaPress reports.
Krasniqi has expressed her readiness to return to competitions, especially after winning the gold medal in the “Paris Grand Slam”, and after receiving the epithet as the best in the -48 kg category. Now she will not be alone, as in the lightweight categories she also has the world champion in the -52 kg category, Majlinda Kelmendi, and Kosovo will have great chances to return with two gold medals from the future competitions.
