“Europe” Judo Championship


Do you support our judokas? The Maxym Stepanov Foundation sponsored the XV Open All-Ukrainian Youth Judo Championship “Europe”.

We are sure that it is worth paying attention to sports not only during the Olympic Games. Therefore, when we were asked by SC “EUROPE”, we gladly supported the championship of young judokas.

Especially since Odessa region already has a strong judo school and its national heroes, like Anastasia Balaban and Alexander Gordienko.

This year about 500 athletes took part in the championship and on June 9, 2018 there were fights between boys and girls of different ages and weight categories.

The winners, of course, were waiting for medals and gifts. Maksym Stepanov, the head of the Odessa Regional State Administration, watched the competitions and cheered for the athletes no less than their coaches. The founder of the foundation congratulated the winners and awarded them prizes. We are sure that there are many future Olympians among these young judokas, Odessa region has something to be proud of!
