Rabat – Despite losing her fight, Moroccan Judoka Aziza Chakir has made the headines after she refused to shake hands with an Israeli opponent during the 2017 Judo Grand-Slam , which is taking place in Abu Dhabi, UAE from October 26 to 29.
In the video, Aziza Chakir is seen hurrying outside the mat at the end of her fight against Israei Judoka Shira Rishori.
Chakir left the competition’s tatami floor immediately after the judo bow, without shaking hands with her Israeli opponent Shira Rishoni.
The Israeli Judo team has reportedly faced different problems in the competition. Emirates refused to display the Israeli flag, even when one of the Israeli judo fighters won a gold medal.
The host country has also refused to raise the Israeli national anthem at the medal ceremony forcing an Israeli judo fighter sang the anthem by himself, reported the Indian Express news platform.
