20 Apr 2016 11:05


At the European Championships in Kazan Hungarian Eva Csernoviczki and Charline van Snick are separated in the draw. The weight division for women U48kg won’t have any athlete of the top 5 of the World Ranking. The mainly Asian dominated class has an Pan American Olympic Champion and two European Olympic medallists, who this edition in Kazan will also fight for the medals. Csernoviczki is in one pool with Valentina Moscatt. Van Snick with Chernyak.

Belgium’s Charline Van Snick defends the title and will again battle with Hungary’s Eva Csernoviczki who’s entered at the number 1 seed whilst Van Snick ranked as number 4 seed. Valwentina Moscatt can be an outsider, she is getting into shape. In pool B Julia Figueroa may face Russian favourite Nataliya Kondratieva but also with Dilara Lokmanhekim. Monica Ungureanu seems to have the best pool to qualify for the semi final. Van Snick will face Cristina Nudescu (MDA) in her first match.

Last year’s winner of the European Games in Baku were:

Charline Van Snick (BEL)

Ebru Sahin (TUR)

Éva Csernoviczki (HUN)
