Featured Idalys Ortiz proclaims three-time Pan American champion

The Cuban Idalys Ortiz met the forecasts and won the Pan American crown for the third consecutive time in the +78 kilograms, now in Lima 2019, to be ratified as one of the best judocas in the entire planet.

The three-time Olympic medalist, including a gold in London 2012, solved his final fight easily by ippon against the Puerto Rican Melissa Mujica.

Ortiz, also a world multi-champion, added title 32 for the Cuban delegation in Lima, which will close its competitive action with the gold lawsuit in the 100 kilograms (m) of its representative Andy Granda against the Venezuelan Pedro Pineda.

The Brazilian Beatriz Souza and the Peruvian Yuliana Bolívar remained with the bronze medals in this division, after defeating the Nicaraguan Izayana Marenco and the American Nina Cutro-Kelly, respectively.
