USA Judo's 2020 Challenge





As a small National Governing Body and non-profit organization, your contributions to USA Judo make an immediate impact on what it can do for athletes, coaches, referees and the general membership. With the 2020 Olympic & Paralympic Games less than a year away, donor contributions are crucial to provide extra support to American Judokas who may represent the United States in Tokyo next year. Thus, USA Judo has created the USA Judo 2020 Challenge; a program with the goal of raising $20,000 for the US Olympic Judo Team and $20,000 for the Paralympic Judo Team over the course of the next year and we would greatly appreciate your participation.



Olympic Games Qualifications:

In 2019, there are 38 IJF events where athletes can compete for points and consequently international ranking. Currently, the following US Athletes are qualified for the Olympic Games with several also still competing for qualification.


Paralympic Games Qualification:
For visually impaired judokas to qualify for the 2020 Paralympic Games they must be ranked in the top 10 WRL based on the International Blind Sports Association Ranking List.
