“It’s a unique chance to see Canada’s best judokas against the best of the best. Since the event is part of the Olympic qualification, the athletes will need all the support they can get from the crowd to perform at their full potential, and the audience will witness a great event,” says Nicolas Gill, CEO of Judo Canada.

Judo Canada wants to thank the numerous partners that make it possible to host major tournaments in Quebec, including the Government of Quebec, the Government of Canada, the city of Montreal, Tourisme Montréal and the Olympic Park. Their support is fundamental in the development of Canadian athletes, who can then benefit from the home advantage in a decisive period in their career: the qualification process for the Tokyo Olympic Games.
