Teenage world champion Daria Bilodid will compete in the UAE for the first time in her career when she takes to the tatami on the opening day. The two-time and reigning senior world champion, who only turned 19 two weeks ago, competes for the first time since winning her second senior crown in August.

The Ukrainian arrived on Monday evening ahead of only her third Grand Slam outing and was in a relaxed meet as she spoke to IJF staff and judoka from other countries.

Bilodid, whose international record stands at 106-5 since appearing at the 2015 Cadet Worlds, will be confident of maintaining her 100% winning record on the Grand Slam stage despite the presence of some of the category’s most complete judoka.

Opposition will come from Brasilia Grand Slam winner Catarina Costa (POR), former world champion Munkhbat Urantsetseg (MGL), world number two Distria Krasniqi (KOS) and Melanie Clement (FRA) who upset Bilodid in March to win Tbilisi Grand Prix gold.
