Newcomer Buchard was disappointed, although winning silver in her debut at Europeans is not shabby for a teenager. “I made mistakes. I am disappointed, because I came here to win. I felt some pressure, but once I made it through the semi-final I was bit more relaxed”, the French judoka told the press.
Rumyantseva and Maryna Cherniak (UKR) earned the bronze medals. “It wasn’t quite enough to get to the final today. The Hungarian (Csernoviczki) has more experienced and is older than me”, Rumyantseva analyzed. “My most valuable experience from this event is that nobody is invincible. You can beat anyone”, she added.
