Judo is a family affair for the Zupancics.
Kelita was introduced to the sport by her father, a fifth-dan black belt, and to this day, she sees her parents as her idols. She is immensely grateful for how they helped her get where she is today, and dreams of one day inspiring the athletes that will come after her.
At the top of the list of Kelita’s accomplish- ments is her first Olympic appearance, in London, 2012. Her next goal is clear: she wants to bring back the Under 70 kg gold medal from Rio, in 2016.
Kelita loves how judo allows her to travel all over the world, meeting wonderful people and making special memories. When she is not training, she is interested in fashion and movies, and she also enjoys reading.
