Went up a grade
The Grand Prix becomes the Grand Slam.
At a press conference held this morning (Tuesday), the Israeli Judo Association, Chairman Moshe Ponti and the candidate for the chairmanship of the Israeli Olympic Committee, Sylvan Adams, announced the arrival of the Grand Slam tournament in Israel on February 18, 2021.
As you may recall, in recent years in January, Israel hosted the lowest competition in the round in terms of scoring, and now it is receiving an upgrade in the Olympic year.
It should be noted that next year only two Grand Slams, a European Championship and a World Championship only, are expected given the fact that this is an Olympic Corona year.
If it is possible for a partial crowd to enter sports stadiums in three months, then the competition will take place at Yad Eliyahu for only a third of the hall.
If it is not yet possible for an audience to enter, it is not inconceivable that the Volundrum in Hadar Yosef in the name of Sylvan Adams will adapt itself to host the competition.
"We continue to fulfill dreams and there are many more dreams in line," said Judo Association chairman Moshe Ponti.
