Pan American Championships bronze medallist Diana Brenes of Costa Rica made her World Championships debut last year with a losing effort against the hugely experienced Bernadette Graf (AUT). The San Jose judoka has never fought at a Grand Prix or a Grand Slam but has regularly seen action in her own continent and has a growing reputation in Pan America. Diana Brenes (CRC) was number 1 of the IJF World Ranking for cadets and juniors U70kg in 2014 and 2015.
