The 2021 TBILISI GRAND SLAM is this weekend! The draws have been completed and we are excited to see World Judo continue.
A total of 465 judokas from all over the world have made the trip, divided almost equally between men and women, with 253 males and 212 females.
One big thing to note is that the French Team was forced to pull out due to a postive COVID-19 case. This means two reigning World Champions (and other superstars) will not be on the mat clearing the path for someone else to shine!
Team USA has 9 athletes stepping on the tatami to compete.
