In 2016, Majlinda Kelmendi wrote history by bringing Kosovo the gold medal at the Olympic Games in Rio.
She managed to defeat the Italian Odette Giuffrida in the final, in the category up to 52 kilograms.
Even today, six years after achieving this historic success, the moment of Kelmendi’s triumph is remembered with great nostalgia and pride.
The girls, led by coach Driton Kuka, do not end their successes there.
Distria Krasniqi and Nora Gjakova, both grabbed the “Gold Medals” at the Olympics held in Tokyo.
