Shirine BOUKLI, a name that has been rapidly gaining recognition in the world of judo, is a truly remarkable athlete. With her exceptional skills and unwavering determination, she has quickly risen through the ranks and is now considered one of the most prestigious opponent in the -48kg category. 

What sets Boukli apart from other athletes is not just her technical prowess, but also her mental strength and resilience. Despite facing numerous challenges and setbacks along the way, she has always managed to bounce back stronger than ever. Her ability to stay focused in the face of adversity is truly inspiring, and it is a testament to her unwavering commitment to her craft.

One of Boukli’s most notable achievements came in 2020 when she won gold at the European Judo Championships in the under-48kg category.
