Klimkait wins gold

Monday, February 2, 2015

Jessica Klimkait, who won the gold medal on Saturday in the under 57 kg junior category, won once again on Sunday, this time in the senior category, during the Arlon Open in Belgium.

The Ontarian judoka won her two bouts in the prelims, then won again against the French Amelie Guihur and Treicy Etiennar, and the British Theresa Stoll. In the finale, she defeated Aurella Issoumaila, also from France.

Kimklait ended the weekend with a second gold medal and a total of 13 winning bouts. The 18-year-old became one of the youngest athletes to dominate the Arlon Open in the senior category. The youngest is still the Japanese Haruka Tachimoto, who won in 2007, when she was 17 years old.
