Triple World Championships runner-up Henk Grol was not very sure how to proceed after the Olympic Games; most likely he would start +100kg. His last matchday was at 11 August 2016 when he couldn’t overcome Cyrille Maret. Now it appears that Grol will make his comeback in Budapest, fighting U100kg.

They have all taken medals, but it is Marie Eve Gahie who has one of the best transitions to the senior division. The French champion claimed silver at the Grand Prix in Düsseldorf in 2017.
