the judoka Idelannis Gómez contributed to the Cuban delegation its second bronze medal in the Junior World Championship which is based in the Ecuadorian city of Guayaquil.
The competitor of the 70 kilogram division started the event with two wins by ippon at the expense of the French Florine Soula and the Czech Julie Zarybnicka, but was then stopped in the quarterfinals by the German Samira Bock, who ultimately also came in third place.
After the setback, the Cuban she recovered with a victory by waza-ari over the Colombian Brenda Olaya, and finished off the task with a success worked in the Golden Rule versus the other German athlete in the category, Sarah Mehlau.
Thus, Gómez added his medal to the previously reached by his compatriot Kimy Bravo (66 kg), a crop that now has the Greater Antilles on the 13th step of a overall table made up of more than 60 nations and led by Japan (3-1-1).
On the most recent day, another Cuban, Serguei Rodríguez (90 kg), competed, but was left without a chance for a podium once he gave in in his first appearance against the American Alexander Knauf.
Today the full weights of the island delegation will go out to the tatamiDayanara Curbelo (+78 kg) and Omar Cruz (+100 kg).
