Gerbi leads the way for Israeli judokas at European Games

Former judo world champion Yarden Gerbi will enter the fray at the European Games on Friday, aiming to claim a medal in the under-63 kilogram competition in Baku, Azerbaijan.

The judo events in Baku are also acting as this year’s European Championships and Gerbi is targeting her third career medal at the continental showcase.

She scaled the podium at the European Championships in 2012 and 2013, claiming silver and bronze medals, respectively, but suffered a shock early exit at last year’s event.
