MARINA PANINA: “The combination between sun, beach and training is just perfect.”
Russian Marina Panina joins the Judo Festival together with her daughter, Zhanna. The fact that they spend time together on the tatami is not new for them. In their judo club KASCAD – Sergiev Posad, Moscow region, it is common to have training camps for parents and children. They organize such training camps every year. This year it is their first time to join the Judo Festival in Antalya, and it is also the first time that they are visiting the city. “It is so good here. There are so many different teams and we also have the chance to see Olympic heroes”, Marina said happily and continued: “The combination between sun, beach and training is just perfect.” Her little eight years old daughter likes it too. “We do different exercises and I can play with many other kids.” Four years ago both started with judo and no doubt, they will be also there at the next EJU Judo Festival.
