Kosovar judoka Nora Gjakova won the gold medal in the -57 kg category at the Olympic Games Tokyo 2020, after beating France’s Sarah Leonie Cysique in the final, who ended up being disqualified.

Gjakova’s gold, the third in her country’s history, is Kosovo’s second in Tokyo after the medal obtained by Disstria Krasniqi in -48 kilos last Saturday.

A historic medal for Kosovo who began competing in Olympics at Rio 2016, following the international recognition of Kosovo Olympic Committee in 2014.
