Cinisello B. (MI), jun. 17th 2016. Miranda Giambelli qualified to the Olympics of Rio. The player of Isao Okano Club 97-ASD, coached by Diego Brambilla, took the ticket to Brasil directly through the International Judo Federation world qualifcation, that lasted 2 years, in the -78 kg category. To underline that Miranda, who will fight for Australia, she has the double passport (she was born in Canberra), begun her Road to Rio 5 month later, owing that she had to wait for the autorization of the italian federation to change team because in her career she already represented Italy in the under 18, under 20 and under 23 national teams.

But that delay didn't stop her: she qualified to the Games and also closed the tour among the Top 16 world players with the partecipation, at the end of may, in Guadalajara (MEX), at the IJF World Judo Masters. Miranda brings back to the Olympics Isao Okano Club for the 3rd time in its history. Infact she is the 3rd player of IOC97 coached by ex-olympians of Atlanta 96 Diego Brambilla who achieves this goal. Before her were Cinzia Cavazzuti, 5th with Italy in the -57 kg division in Sydney 2000, and Rostand Melaping, competing with Camerun in the Games of Athens 2004 in the under 90 kg category. Congratulations to Miranda Giambelli who start her agonistic path when she was only 12 just at Isao Okano Club 97-ASD and arrived to the Olympics, 12 years later (now she is 24), always with the same Club!!!
