Judo in International Refugee Team

On the occasion of the World Refugee Day that took place on June 20, the IOC announced the list of Refugee Athlete Scholarship-Holders aiming to be part of IOC Refugee Olympic Team Tokyo 2020. The International Judo Federation is very happy that among the eight sports that were chosen, judo will, as it was the case in Rio 2016, welcome two refugee athletes to participate in the homecoming of judo at the Games. They are, so to speak, from all over Africa. But for once, for months, sometimes for years, this trip was a choice, even a gift. In 2019 the IJF announced in 2019 a new set rules regarding the participation of Juniors and younger immigrants to IJF.
