German championship for Fiona Fischer
In her last competition in the U18 age group, Fiona Fischer put on the “crown” again in Leipzig and won the German Judo Championship. Since she supported the U21 national team as a partner in their preparations for the World Cup at the time of the North German qualifying matches, the national coach Sandra Klinger set her limit up to 57 kilograms for the national climax in Leipzig. Accordingly, the enormous pressure to succeed was the first opponent in the championship. She was supported by U18 national trainer Marc Blödorn, who has been accompanying her for almost ten years. With the team from Lower Saxony behind her, she achieved her first early victory after a walk-through. After that, the Godshorn rose from fight to fight and was also the winner in the following quarter and semi-finals using beautiful techniques. In the final against Maja Patané from UJKC Potsdam, she only needed 45 seconds to convert a Wazari in the grab handle to an Ippon and to achieve the title of German U18 champion. However, the 17-year-old does not have much time to celebrate and relax. Already next weekend she will be back on the mat at the German U21 Championships in Frankfurt / Oder. As a European Championship starter, she was also set for this. However, the pressure to succeed will be much less on her here.
