The 28-year-old judoka arrived in Japan a few weeks ago to continue with her Olympic scholarship along with the Venezuelan judoka and flag bearer in these games, Elvismar Rodriguez.
Barrios reported his absence and expressed his dissatisfaction for not being in the fair but he prefers to be at 100% of his skills “I’m still recovering physically to be back soon and take on more challenges.”
Likewise, the Venezuelan delegation in the discipline will have the experienced Karen León and Elvismar Rodriguez together with a renewed judo team.
