Exactly 100 days in advance of the Suzuki World Championships in Budapest, 23-year-old Hungarian Krisztian Toth is expected back on the tatami on Sunday. Toth will make his comeback in the IJF World Tour at the Grand Slam in Ekaterinburg. The World Championships will take place in his own country, perhaps the most important event in his career so far.

Toth medalled at the senior World Championships and the Junior World Championships in the same year in 2014 and has been engaged in the some of the most memorable battles in the last Olympic cycle. Toth, who took silver at the European Championships a year, was plagued by shoulder problems in the latter stages of the Rio 2016 Olympic cycle and delayed surgery until after the Olympics.

Toth has now returned to full fitness and in true Toth style has picked Russia to make his return to the IJF circuit which he has been absent from since winning the Budapest Grand Prix in 2016. The mature Hungarian, who is one of the best speakers in front the of the cameras, has a tough category and roster of stars to contend with on Sunday but that is exactly what he wants and is motivated by.

A positive result in Ekaterinburg will see Toth pencilled in as one of the favourites for U90kg glory at the 2017 Suzuki World Judo Championships in Budapest.
