Tara Babulfath has a really sharp competition record. She has won European Championship gold, European Championship silver and World Championship silver as a cadet, the level below the juniors, and against the older juniors she has already won three out of four tournaments.

On Sunday, she will make her senior debut in the 48-kg class at the World Championships in Doha, Qatar. The 17-year-old says she doesn't know what to expect from the World Cup but still goes there with high hopes.

"I've met a lot of them in training. I get there with zero expectations, I have nothing to lose really.

"On a good day, I can come out as a winner if I do my judo.

Travel the world to get sharp sparring

Since she has had difficulty finding really good sparring in her weight class in Sweden, she has regularly traveled abroad. The pursuit of good training has taken her to South Korea and Japan and she sees it as positive for the future that she gets the opportunity to train with the best seniors in the world.

Among other things, she has been well received by the former world champion and Olympic medalist in the 73-kg class on the men's side, South Korean An Changrim, who has taken on the Swedish 17-year-old.

"Judo is not the same. Sweden and Scandinavia have a type. Japan has a completely different type than in Europe. So it's very interesting to see how judo is different everywhere and you learn. You think you know everything and then you come to a new place and then a whole world opens up.
