I was born on 3 July 1988 in Velserbroek, the Netherlands. At age 4, I started taking judo classes at Ben Rietdijk Sport in Velserbroek. Incidentally, Ben is still my trainer. Ever since, we have been travelling the entire globe together. As it soon turned out, I had a talent for judo and won e.g. 4 national titles in my junior and aspirant period. Neither did I miss out on the European medals and became the European champion in the -17, -20 and -23 categories. As of January 2015 , I represent the Israel Women's Judo Team in the category -70 kg. My absolute dream and goal is to obtain a medal at the Olympic Games in Rio 2016, and that will take top priority over anything else this coming year. Fortunately, I have in the meantime been able to demonstrate that I belong to the world's top judokas. If you are curious about what titles I have won, I advise you to scroll further down this page.
