What a day in London! Ursula Žolnir athletes became Olympic champion in the category to 63 kg. Great battles in the finals crowned with victory over Chinese Lily Sue.


24-year rival, last year's Asian champion, is in the Hall tatamiju Excel beat preferentially vazarija, to which came after two and a half minutes of struggle. This is the fourth gold medal and also the first woman medal to Slovenia at the Olympic Games since independence (Luka Spik / Iztok Cop and Raymond Debevec Primoz Kozmus 2000 and 2008).


In the semi-final has always been extremely focused Urška Žolnir(her look was just "killing") with iponom better than mongolian Munhzaje Cedevsruen. Interestingly, it is surprising Cedevsruenova previously ruled out the current World and European champion, a French Gevrise Eman (at the end of the Japanese as Josie Ueno had to be content with bronze). 30-year-old Žolnir, who was already a bronze eight years ago in Athens, is much lower mongolian initially threw back after two minutes and 18 seconds of the match.


"In my category, we were 15, who can get medals. Maybe I pointed a French Gevrise Eman, Japanese Josie Ueno, almost certainly will be surprised by any competitor in the background."
