Additional information / What would you like people to know about you?

Nora started judo at age 10, together with her younger brother. As a younger girl she was very successful in international competitions winning medals in different age categories. Nora didn't have the chance to compete in the European championships for cadets and juniors because her country wasn't internationally recognized. She has won many medals for seniors, but her goal will be a medal at the European Games in Baku and to qualify for the Olympic Games in Rio.
