USA Judo Announces Olympic Team

USA Judo

USA Judo has announced their final team for the upcoming Tokyo Olympics, with only a disappointingly small contingent of four athletes having qualified for the games. The team will include women's heavyweight entrant Nina Cutro-Kelly, who, at age 36, will be the oldest American judoka to ever compete in the Olympics.

Also included on the squad are Angelica Delgado and Nefeli Papadakis in the women's 52 and 78 kg categories, respectively, and the sole men's representative, Colton Brown at 90 kg, along with coaches Jhonny Prado and Justin Flores. The four-person squad will be the smallest number of competitors the U.S. has sent to an Olympics since judo debuted at the 1964 games where there were only four weight divisions.
