Daria Bilodid (Ukraine), a bronze medalist in the women’s 48-kilogram judo weight class at the Tokyo Olympics and known as a judoka who is beautiful, has been attracting attention by showing “a peace sign in judo uniform” on her Instagram account. Fans commented, “Very beautiful,” “Her smile is so nice,” and “I wish peace for Ukraine.”

No doubt athletes from various countries are also supporting her (from her Instagram).

Bilodid posted a photo of herself at a judo court. She is wearing a white judo uniform with the Ukrainian flag on her chest and is making a peace sign. Since the beginning of the invasion of Ukraine by Russian troops, she has been reporting on the situation in Ukraine on his Instagram every day. She also called for donations for his fans in Japan.

Incidentally, next to Bilodid is another woman in Judo uniform. Majlinda Kelmendi, she is the gold medalist in the women’s 52kg category at the 2016 Rio Olympics. She retired after the Tokyo Olympics. Why are they together?

“You are an amazing person and a true friend of mine. Majlinda Kelmendi, legendary judoka and new coach.”

Is Kelmendi going to coach Bilodid? If so, this is a surprise. Kelmendi’s home country, Kosovo, is also a region that has been in conflict for a long time. Perhaps the two have something more than judo in common.

In any case, Bilodid’s postings are inevitably tinged with a sense of sadness. We hope that the world will soon become a place where Bilodid can concentrate solely on judo.
