You are new here, so let me tell you you just threw a big bomb in the fire by calling them 'true athletes and role models' :d 

 

(Personally I still find it rather hard to know what to think, I think all sides have their points)

Well they were both world champions in the last 2 years that for the first part and as for the second thing last year and also before a picture like this would never happen it’s not a political statement rather it’s a chance to see that there is things beyond politics and for me it’s a good sign

Oh I agree, but Mollaei has become a little....let's say, controversial here with the whole Iran-Israel-leaving Iran thing :d

Saeid Mollaei, who we just discussed above, will be competing for :MGL Mongolia at the Olympics. His change of sporting nationality has been accepted by the IOC.

Dutch heavyweight Ilona Lucassen has died due to for now unknown reasons, aged only 23. She was in the national team since 2016, won a GP bronze medal in 2018, silver in the European mixed teams championships in the same year and competed in Tel Aviv GP early in this year.

 

Edit: a message from her former judo school apparently says "she has been fighting with herself immensely. Sadly she has left us last Friday."
