The 22-year-old was chosen to succeed the para-triathlete Christiane Reppe. Angelina Salli is ID judoka. ID Judo is for people with an intellectual disability. The international term “ID” stands for “intellectual disability”. Salli’s greatest sporting triumph was winning the 2019 European Championship in the over 78 kilogram class. The Hanoverian has also won medals at the International German Championships, the Youth Country Cup and the Special Olympics.
