Judoka Andreea Chitu brought Romania the second gold medal at the 2015 European Games in Baku (Azerbaijan). Chitu defeated on Thursday France’s Annabelle Euranie in the final of the 52kg weight division.

Chitu entered directly the round of 16, where she beat Israeli Roni Schwartz; then she left behind Italian Odette Giuffrida in the quarterfinal and German Mareen Kraeh in the semifinal.

The judo competition in Baku also stands as European Championships this year, after the spring competition scheduled in Glasgow has been cancelled.
For Andreea Chitu, it was the second European gold, after the medal in Chelyabinsk (Russia) in 2012. She also won silver in the 2013 European Championships in Budapest and bronze last year in Montpellier (France). Her World Championships record also includes one silver medal in Chelyabinsk in 2014 and one bronze in Paris, in 2011.

Romania’s record in the Baku games now stands at ten medals — two gold, four silver and four bronze. AGERPRES
