Anna Oliinyk-Korniiko wins the European Judo Cup among cadets twice in a row

For the second time in a row this season, Anna Oliinyk-Korniiko, a young participant of the Olympic Dreams project, has won the European Cadet Judo Cup.

In April 2024, Anna took gold on the tatami in Teplice, Czech Republic, and in May she won in the Polish city of Bielsko-Biała, taking first place.
The final, in which the Ukrainian athlete met the current Turkish champion, her principal rival, Tuana Gulenay, was the most difficult, and the personal score was in Gulenay's favour.

On her way to the top step of the podium, the Ukrainian judoka in her weight category of up to 70 kg fought five opponents. In succession, Anna defeated Diana Benkova (Poland), Vita Hudika (Croatia), and Martyna Skorupinska (Poland). In the semi-finals, Anna Oliinyk-Korniiko brilliantly defeated Valerie Tombou from Belgium in 14 seconds.
Oliinyk-Korniiko and her coaches Oleksandra Starkova and Karen Balayan are currently preparing for the European and World Championships to be held in Bulgaria in late June and Turkmenistan in late September.

At the European Cup in Poland, the Ukrainian judo team also celebrated a team victory, winning six medals in total.

We would like to remind that the Olympic Dreams project, initiated by the patron of the Future for Children Charitable Foundation Anatoliy Boyko to preserve Ukraine's Olympic reserve, has been implemented since March 2022.
