Doha World’s Predictions -52kg: Abe (JPN)

There are many top players in the -52kg division which traditionally is among the hardest weight class for women because of the sheer number of quality players it has. There’s Distria Krasniqi (KOS) and Amandine Buchard (FRA) who are absolutely top-notch. But it’s hard to imagine anyone else getting the gold but Uta Abe (JPN). Diyora Keldiyorova (UZB), with her strong groundwork, especially juji-gatame, is a dark horse.
