The Portuguese Judo Federation (FPJ) will be hosting the 2020 Recognition Lunch tomorrow. "The event aims to honor several personalities who stood out in their areas and / or contributed to the development of National Judo in 2020", highlights the institution in a statement.
Unable to carry out the Annual Gala in the context of the covid-19 pandemic, the FPJ opts, therefore, to hold an event on a smaller scale, meeting the recommendations of health entities.
To DIÁRIO AS BEIRAS, the president of the FPJ, Jorge Fernandes, explained that the option was to “not let the moment go by” and explained what the motto for lunch will be. "The medaled athletes in the European Championship and Grand Slam in 2020 will be recognized, in addition to these, the five coaches of the national teams will also be distinguished for their commitment and delivery during the pandemic," he explained.
