Rodrick Kuku was awarded with a wild card for the Olympic Games 2016 in Rio. Kuku had a brief competition outing in Baku in 2016 when he made his IJF debut. KUKU, who now lives in Pretoria, South Africa shipped a waza-ari score to Elio Verde (ITA) from a tomoe-nage which separated the pair at the end of a competitive contest. The Congolese judoka received a wildcard spot for the Rio 2016 Olympics where he came undone against Wander Mateo (DOM) by a waza-ari score from a modified kata-guruma.
