Kosovar judoka Loriana Kuka has closed the adventure without a medal at the European Judo Championship in Lisbon.
Loriana who started in the best way by defeating Ukrainian Anastasia Turchyn in the second round and then Dutch Bernardette Graf in the quarterfinals, was defeated in the semifinals by Guusje Stennhuius.
She was also unlucky in the ‘repechage’, as she was defeated by the French Fanny Estelle with ippon.
Meanwhile, we recall that in this European Championship, Kosovo was decorated with three medals, two gold by Akil Gjakova and Distria Krasniqi and a bronze by Nora Gjakova.
