At the World Cadet Championships in Sarajevo Uzbekistan celebrates its first Cadet World Champion. Diyora Keldiyorova took the title U48kg in the Bosnian capital. In the country of double senior world champion Rishod Sobirov and World Open Champion Abdullo Tangriev little Keldiyorova defeated Dutch Jorien Visser.

Cadet European Championships bronze medallist Jorien Visser (NED) was unable to resist 17-year-old Cadet European Cup bronze medallist Diyora Keldiyorova. Keldiyorova took the lead with a yuko, seconds after Visser was penalised for passivity, and followed up with osaekomi-waza as she held down the Dutch judoka with kami-shiho-gatame for 20 seconds and ippon. It’s the fourth time that a Dutch athlete is in the final, but none of them was successful to clinch the title. For Uzkebistan it was the second finalist. In 2009 Gulnoza Matniyazova lost the final U63kg for women.

In the first semi-final Cadet European Championships bronze medallist Anais Mosdier (FRA) was beaten by Visser (NED) by the slender margin of a yuko score which was the only time the scoreboard was in action in the four minute contest. In the second semi-final eventual winner Keldiyorova (UZB) saw off Tugce Beder (TUR) who finished fifth at the EYOF a week ago. Keldiyorova powered through to the final by ippon having been in front by a waza-ari score.


The first bronze medal was won by Beder (TUR) who frustrated former Cadet European silver medallist and top seed Blandine Pont (FRA) and emerged with the win by way of a yuko score. The second bronze medal was claimed by Mosdier (FRA) who defeated Cadet European Championship silver medallist Nadezda Petrovic (SRB) by wazari-awasette-ippon.
