The Judo World Cup in Qatar has started. The Swedish promise Tara Babulfath got a tough draw and was pitted directly against reigning World Championship silver medalist Katharina Menz.
It ended in a loss for Babulfath.
"I had a game plan that I felt confident with. I have trained with German before and knew her style. I felt I controlled the game but when I attacked she countered and I dropped a point," she said.
This was the 17-year-old's senior debut. She enjoyed the experience at the World Cup.
"It's been good. I love the feeling I got when I entered the arena," Babulfath said.
