Reviewing the results of the recent Judo World Championships, we had a great start into this new partnership with the Swedish Judo Federation. It was Tommy Macias and Marcus Nyman who made judo history for their country in Budapest, winning two world championship medals. The first World Championship medals for Sweden since 1986, when Marcus Nyman’s mother stepped on the World Judo podium.
Anna Bernholm is the lady power in the Swedish Judo National Team. The 31-year-old former European Bronze medalist complements her male teammates Tommy Macias, Marcus Nyman and Robin Pacek for a strong Swedish Olympic squad.
Further, we are looking forward to Nicolina Pernheim’s Paralympic performance. She is considered one of the best female judoka in Sweden. The 3-times European Champion participated in three Summer Paralympics and narrowly missing out on an Olympic bronze medal. Let’s hope she can get her well deserved Olympic medal this year.
"We are very proud about this new partnership with the Swedish Judo Federation and look forward to see the Swedish top-team compete in IPPON GEAR uniforms. It is our goal to support the development of Judo in Sweden and this starts with the national federation. But we know, the clubs build the base of every Judo nation, especially after Covid times. So, we welcome every Swedish Club to join our team and to use our 25% club discount until the end of the year." (Stefan Kneitinger, CEO IPPON GEAR)
At IPPON GEAR we are very happy that we can support such a great national team until 2024. We are looking forward to a successful cooperation!
