HEGYI SECURES AUSTRIA TO LEAVE WITH PROSPEROUS MEMORIES

HEGYI SECURES AUSTRIA TO LEAVE WITH PROSPEROUS MEMORIES

Gold medalist -90kg: Onise Saneblidze (GEO) 

“Of course it is a big success for me but right now I am a Cadet which means this is only the beginning of my career. I want to win more and more competitions to be a great judoka. The national team of Georgia is one of the best teams in the world and us, young athletes are looking up to them and now we are trying to also achieve many successes.”

Gold medalist +90kg: Stephan Hegyi (AUT)

“At the European Championships I finished fifth place. I had a hard fight against the Russia and then I also lost against the Georgian. Today, it was important for me to beat him in the semi-final and to show everybody that I am able to beat him. To lead with a little advantage against the Ukrainian in the final was the best thing could happen to me.”

Gold medalist +70kg: Annalisa Calagreti (ITA)

“During the day I have had lots of emotions…I put all my effort into every single contest and it paid off and this is what I wanted by the end of the day, to win it… I was very nervous in the final because I lost against Hershko (ISR) at the Cadet Europeans so I knew I have to do my best.”
