First podium for Italy at the Hungary Masters in judo.
In Budapest, in the -48kg category, Assunta Scutto came third.
The Italian eliminated China’s Zongying Guo on her debut, before losing to Mongolia’s Baasankh Bavuudorj.
In the repechages, the Neapolitan athlete won first against Portugal’s Catarina Costa, then, in the final challenge, against Serbia’s Milica Nikolic.
Third place, therefore, went to Assunta Scutto (photo IJF), who came away with precious points towards the qualification rankings for the Paris 2024 Olympic Games.
