Judoka Granda, Silva, Idalis and Maylín qualify for Paris 2024

Cubans Andy Granda, Iván Silva, Idalis Ortiz and Maylín del Toro will participate in the Paris 2024 Olympic Games, after the closing of the qualifying process for the world ranking (RM) that makes the Olympic ranking (RO) official.

At the end of the qualifying tournament calendar for the Parisian multi-sport event, Granda was the best placed in the ranking for the five rings, finishing in fifth place in the over 100 kilogrammes (kg), with 5,554 points.

Granda was followed by Silva (90 kg), in tenth place (4264 points), Idalis (+78 kg-nineteenth-2983 points) and Maylín (63 kg-twenty-first-3036 points), in that order, according to official information provided today by the International Judo Federation (IJF).

The location is important, as it will influence the draw for the formation of the pools, and the better it is, the more judoists will start the action on the tatami with judoists farther away from the leaders.

Although Idalis, the flag-bearer of the Cuban delegation together with Greco-Roman wrestler Mijaín López, appears on the third step of the Cuban list, the fact is that she is the one who is attracting the most attention from the specialists, as she will be looking for her fifth medal in the City of Light (1-2-2).

Granda also boasts a first-class medal list, as he is world champion in Tashkent, Uzbekistan, in 2022, as is Silva, who is runner-up in Baku, Azerbaijan, in 2018, and fifth place (bronze) in the Uzbek capital.

Maylin has no world titles, but has three gold and one bronze medal at the Pan American Games and two gold, one silver and two bronze medals at the Pan American Championships.

In relation to the previous edition of Tokyo 2020, Cuban judo will be with two athletes less, since six athletes attended the Japanese capital, with the best result for Idalis, who won the silver medal.

So far, Cuba has qualified 51 athletes in 14 disciplines, as this morning the Olympic ticket of diver Anaisley García was announced, who will compete in the 10-metre platform, accompanied by Prisis Leydis Ruiz, in the three-metre springboard.
