Category: Judo

After Antalya (Turkey) and Nur-Sultan (Kazakhstan), São Paulo is hosting the last 2022 IBSA World Grand Prix of the season, before the World Championships in Baku, in November.

This weekend (July 2nd and July 3rd), 90 athletes from 21 countries will gather at the Centro de Treinamento Paralímpico de São Paulo to give the final shape of the world rankings towards Paris 2024 before Baku.

Brazil, competing at home, has nothing less than seven athletes leading the rankings in several categories: Arthur Silva (J1 -90kg), Wilians Araújo (J1 +90kg), Thiego Marques (J2 -60kg), Rosicleide Silva (J1 -48kg), Brenda Freitas (J1 -70kg), Alana Maldonado (J2 -70kg), and Rebeca Silva (J2 +70kg). From this list, only Alana Maldonado will not be competing, which may endanger her leadership. On the contrary, Rebeca Silva may already have the lead position secured. Nine of the current world ranking leaders are already confirmed in São Paulo.

The 2022 IBSA Judo Grand Prix Brazil will be full of interesting duels. All the action will be live streamed on the IBSA YouTube channel, and the links will be provided daily both on the website and on social media. This Friday, the draw will be taking place and can also be followed worldwide by live stream.
