Zsófia Szabó, Hungary. Working her way up in the European Championship ranks, and taking the tittle, 2016/17, in a very convincing way. Szabó has been one of the stable practitioners in the lighter divisions. Possesses that many misses in that division, sharp techniques that ends in Wazari or Ippon Some merits: EC 3rd 2013/14, EC 2nd 2015 and 1st 2016. Branko Memorial champion 2015/14/13, Winning the Austrian Open +best fighter 2015, 2nd Mas Oyama Memorial 2014. Also showed great skill going up against bigger opponents, and given them technical challenges that many could not match.
