World Championships rookie Bozhidar Temelkov who has a sambo background, has won two Junior Continental Cup titles this year after a flurry of ippons in Panama and Casablanca. The Bulgarian was brought back down to earth when he lost his opening contests at the Zagreb Grand Prix and Budapest Grand Prix this summer. Temelkov fought at the Cadet Worlds in 2013 and 2015, the Junior Worlds in 2015 and now completes the set this year.
