In a week's time the best sportsmen of the world will meet in Budapest, Hungary, to find out who is the strongest. What do we expect to see from representatives of women's weight classes? ()
Senior women 50 kg
The current champion on the left hand: Snezhana Babaeva (Slovakia)
The current champion on the right hand: Snezhana Babaeva (Slovakia)
At the 2016 World Championship in Bulgaria, Snezhana Babaeva confirmed her highest level and took two gold medals. At the European Championships in 2017 Snejana did not pull, like another favorite of this category Esra Kiraz from Turkey. In their absence, the titles of champions were divided by athletes from Russia and Ukraine. At the upcoming championship we consider Snejana and Esra the main contenders for gold. On the side of Snezana there are experience and skill, on the side of Esra - youth and motivation, so the fight will be interesting.
Senior women 55 kg
The current champion on the left hand: Alina Volkova (Russia)
The current champion on the right hand: Dimitrina Dimitrova (Bulgaria)
In this category for several years there are some obvious favorites, at the European championships – Alina Volkova, Victoria Ilyushina and Dimitrina Dimitrova; Chris de Souza is added for the world championships. In the struggle on the left hand every year Alina Volkova is getting better, she found a way to fight and win the main rival - Victoria Ilyushina from Ukraine. We will put Alina above the rest and on the victory left hand. On the right hand the competition is more serious, at the Worlds-2016 Chris de Souza pulled very well and took the silver. But most of all we were surprised by the progress of Dimitrina Dimitrva, who then easily defeated all rivals, and it seemed that she would stay in the first place for a long time, however at the European Championships in 2017 Alina found a way to defeat the Bulgarian athlete. Most likely, the fight for gold will again flare up between Alina and Dimitrina.
Senior women 60 kg
The current champion on the left hand: Ekaterina Afonina (Russia)
The current champion on the right hand: Irina Driaeva (Georgia)
Irina Driaeva most likely will not defend her title of champion, at the European Championships she pulled in another weight class - up to 65 kg. Therefore, as the main favorite for both hands we see Ekaterina Afonina from Russia, which at the European Championships in 2017 showed a very good form and made a gold double.
