The judo fighter from Kosovo has defeated the Dutch, Sanne Verhagen, which was penalized for passiveness.

In the semifinal, the Kosovo judo fighter lost against the Hungarian Hedvig Karakas in the 57 kg weight category.

Meanwhile, on Friday, the other judo fighter, Akil Gjakova could not win the fight against the Montenegrin Nikola Gusic. This defeat deprives Kosovo of another medal in the European Olympic games taking place in Baku. /ibna/
