The IJF World Judo Tour returns to Budapest in July for a summer supershow.
The Tokyo 2020 Olympic qualification has reached the halfway point and the Hungarian capital is a stage that befits the champions of our sport and the desire of our elite judoka who are dreaming of earning a place in Japan.
The Hungarian Judo Association has a tremendous level of experience and expertise when it comes to staging major judo events, including the 2017 World Championships, and enjoys a wonderful working relationship with the IJF.
I wish good luck to the organising team and all the coaches, athletes, officials and volunteers.
