Judo World Championship 2021

Last week, the Judo World Championships took place in Budapest, Hungary. This was the last international judo competition before the main event which will take place this summer. At the end of the competition, 10 brands were represented on the podium but Mizuno's Runbird stood out. Worn by 24 out of the 56 medalist, 8 of which are world champions. These great results are connected to the strong performance of the teams and athletes sponsored by the brand.

We would like to congratulate Japan for bringing home 11 medals and 5 World champion titles. As always, the Japanese team was a fierce group to compete against however, this time, it was even more impressive considering that Japan did not send out their best Judoka for each category.
France reserved their best Judokas but sent their title holder Clarisse Agbegnenou, who received an incredible 5th world title, while Madeleine Malonga unfortunately lost during the final round against a fellow Mizuno athlete, Anna Maria Wagner from Germany. At the end of the competition, 8 countries stood and represented Mizuno on the podium, we are proud and honored by their trust in our brand and our products!
