Paula Pareto of Argentina is Athlete Role Models (ARM) for Judo at the Buenos Aires Youth Olympic Games, a role that is important. Pareto as she is walking in the aisles of the games, taking advantage of every opportunity to interact with the judokas, their coaches but also the Argentinean public that came to watch the judo competitions.

For Paula Pareto, the challenge is important because in addition to being ARM, she is also the heroine of a whole country: "The whole world is present in Buenos Aires. I am very proud of that. I would have liked to have the chance to participate in such an event when I was younger, but the YOG did not exist yet. Here I am at the disposal of the athletes and I am here to support them. This is a great chance and a great honor. It's fantastic for South America and Argentina. This gives us a great opportunity to share our culture."

Paula Pareto has just won the bronze medal at the Baku World Championships à couple of weeks ago. Already a world and Olympic gold medalist, she has not yet made the decision to stop her career and she will be present at the Cancun Grand Prix in a few days. It is therefore still too early for her to say what will be her life after her sporting career.

Teenager Koga Wakana captures gold in Montreal

Japanese judoka Koga Wakana captured the gold medal at the Grand Prix in Montreal U48kg. 18-Year old Koga was not a favorite at the start of the day. It must be said that she had a glorious opponent in the semi-final as she was opposed to Paula Pareto (ARG), who came to Montreal only for gold. But the young Japanese, whose only glories to date were two gold medals won in continental cups (cadets and juniors), was not afraid and won against the Olympic champion in the golden score to reach the last match of the day.

Brazil and Canada seemed to be the two most dominant nations in this moment at the forthcoming Judo Pan American Championships held in Lima, Peru, this week. The Pan Americans are strong at level in both heavyweight categories but perhaps the most eye-catching division in for women U57kg. However Jessica Klimkait will be missing in Lima, so no Canadian clash, but perhaps Christa Deguchi and Rafaela Silva may battle as highest seeded players. Read more
