Diyora Keldiyorova from Uzbekistan has impressive skills in groundwork, particularly in juji-gatame, which could make her a standout athlete in Pool D. Although Gefen Primo is a valuable asset for Israel, there is potential for another athlete to advance in this pool.Krasniqi is grouped in Pool A with Sosorbaram Lkhagvasuren from Mongolia, who should not be underestimated. However, it is difficult to predict who will secure the two quarter final positions with Mascha Ballhaus and Perez Box also in the same pool.In Pool C, Reka Pupp from Hungary is a prominent figure, while Charline van Snick (BEL) is an experienced and accomplished fighter making a comeback at this level. Odette Giuffrida (ITA), a double Olympic medallist, has the strongest reputation at major events, but has not performed well at World Championships in the past. Despite her best finish being fifth place in 2015, this pool presents opportunities for her.Distria Krasniqi (KOS) and Amandine Buchard (FRA) are both exceptional, but it’s unlikely that anyone other than Uta Abe (JPN) will win the gold medal. Abe and Buchard are in the same pool, leaving little opportunity for other competitors.Ute Abe and Distria Krasniqi are favored to win gold in the U52kg category in Doha. This would be Abe’s fourth gold medal at the age of 22, while Krasniqi has only won two bronze medals at the world championships. However, we believe that Krasniqi’s record will improve this year. It’s possible that Abe and Krasniqi will face each other in the semi-finals. As for the other finalist, Keldiyorova is unpredictable but in good form.The women’s U52kg category at the second day of the World Judo Championships in Doha is expected to be exciting. This is not due to the small differences between the top players, but rather because there are numerous high-level competitors in this weight class. The U52kg division is known to be one of the most challenging for women, as it boasts a large number of skilled athletes.
What are the chances of Uta Abe winning the U52kg Doha, and who is likely to be the other finalist?
