The OTC’s are meant to give the ultimate basis for good European results and therefore the European Judo Union wishes to give the best opportunities to its teams’ of athletes, coaches and referees to prepare themselves in the best conditions for the Olympics in London 2012.
This will be achieved by supporting a series of eight travelling training camps this season at a variety of locations within the European geographical area as specified above, and the EJU will cover the full cost of any athlete who is in the top three of the world ranking list.
The 3 highest from the WRL are supported plus in addition to that there is a second support list for potential and small country athletes.
WRL up to the Pan American Tour has been used to decide the supported EJU athletes for OTC in London/Dartford 8-12 August and Rome in 16-30 September.
