Zagreb Cadet European Cup

Zagreb Cadet European Cup

The Croatian Judo Federation hosted a record number of competitors, 894 judoka from 35 different countries

Traditionally, Croatia gathers the best cadets from all over the world and it is no secret that the Zagreb Cadet European Cup is one of the most important competitions on the European Judo Unions calendar. President of the Croatian Judo Federation and IJF Executive Member, PhD. Sanda Čorak had to say this about the event:

The 16th Cadet Cup in Croatia awaits us this weekend. We are extremely looking forward to it because even though we already achieved the record in 2017 with 790 competitors, this year we will probably exceed that record with 894 competitors coming to us from as many as 35 countries from two continents. The Croatian Judo Federation is known as the organizer of many international competitions, and the Cadet Cup is extremely important to us in order to provide our younger competitors with an extremely strong competition in the country. We hope that we will welcome all the competitors and that, as always, they will take home from Zagreb a beautiful picture from the competition and, what is important, make some new friends with judo.

Fans and judoka are no doubt excited to be back in Zagreb. After canceling in 2020 due to the pandemic and in 2021, for the first and only time, was held outside of Zagreb with a modest 368 competitors. As always, check out the results from this past weekend down below!
