Saudi Judo Competitor At The Olympics ‘Forfeits’ Fight To Avoid Going Up Against An Israeli

Posted : Posted By : Alcapela Z.

A Saudi judo competitor forfeited her first round match at the Olympic Games to avoid going up against a rival from Israel, it has been claimed. Joud Fahmy was supposed to have taken on Christianne Legentil from Mauritius for the right to take on Israel’s Gili Cohen in the next round.

But before the clash, Saudi officials tweeted that she had injured her arm and leg during training and that medics had told her to pull out.


Afterwards, media outlets in Israel reportedly suggested that 22-year-old Fahmy was not injured.

According to the Times of Israel, Channel 2 broadcaster said she had dropped out to avoid a fixture against an Israeli.

Saudi Arabia and Israel have no official relations and the kingdom prohibits its citizens from travelling to Israel. It also does not grant visas to Israelis.
