Teddy Riner, injured, withdraws from the 2022 Judo World Cup

The ten-time world champion and triple Olympic gold medalist in French judo Teddy Riner, injured in an ankle in August, announced on Monday that he must give up the World Cup scheduled in Tashkent (Uzbekistan), from October 6 to 13.

“I was afraid of it, but the medical tests carried out this day have confirmed that I will not be able to resume judo for a few weeks, which therefore excludes my participation in the next World Cup in Tashkent,” Riner, 33, writes on Twitter.

“Two years after the Olympic Games, I can’t take any risks. Now the next appointment is for the next World Cup next May in Qatar,” added the French sports star.

At the end of August, at a concentration in Rabat, in Morocco, he was injured when a training partner fell on one of his ankles.

The French Judo Federation and PSG, his club, had then indicated that this sprain required “the use of a splint and the use of crutches for three weeks”, ensuring that his participation in the 2022 World Cup was maintained.

Riner, bronze in more than 100 kg and Olympic team champion in August 2021 in Tokyo, has not participated in a World Cup since 2017.

In July, he won the Budapest Grand Slam, his first competition on the international stage since the Tokyo Games.
