Majlinda KELMENDI (KOSOVO) -52Kg Budapest Grand Prix 2016

Two-time world champion Majlinda KELMENDI (KOS) faced her lead training partner and understudy in 20-year-old Junior world champion Distria KRASNIQI (KOS) in the -52kg final on Saturday. The two Kosovo stars walked to the venue together ahead of fighting each other and went all out in a gripping bout. Club and international team colleagues KELMENDI and KRASNIQI, who live on the same street, were unable to score as KELMENDI prevailed on shido penalties 1:3 and the pair shared a special moment on the mat as they showed their mutual respect and friendship knowing that neither of them would be where they are today – on the Budapest Grand Prix podium among other triumphs – without each other
