World Judo Championships 2022
The Humo Ice Dome in Tashkent will now serve as the location of the judo competition towards the forthcoming World Championships from October 6th to the 13th. Already, the first delegations have begun their training in the area.
Some of the participants have already arrived, such as the lightweights, while the heavier athletes and their coaches and delegates are expected to come later.
There will be around 600 people taking part in the competition, including their coaches and representatives. The number of countries that have entered the competition is 82, the lowest number for individual World Championships in this century. 88 countries competed at the Olympics held in Munich in 2001. 142 nations will gather in Tokyo in 2019 to discuss the epidemic. The 571 athletes that have so far registered represent the fewest number of competitors in the past 13 years. This time around, athletes need to be ranked in the top 100 in the world to compete, which ensures that the competition will be of an exceptional level.
We look forward to getting started with the Tashkent World Championships Seniors 2022, which will include individuals and mixed teams. This competition is already showing signs of being an excellent vintage. Examine the previews that cover all of the different weight categories.
