Ecaterina GuicaEcaterina Guica realized how much she wanted to succeed in judo when she competed at her first international event. Guica won national titles in the U-17 and U-20 divisions in 2009 and 2010, respectively. She was Canada’s lone judoka at the inaugural Youth Olympic Games in Singapore in 2010. Guica won her first senior national title in 2013 before earning her first World Cup victory in November at the Oceania Open Apia. Coming back from injury in 2014, she competed for a bronze medal at the Tashkent Grand Prix, where her resulting fifth place finish is a career highlight. She reclaimed her Canadian title in 2015 and won a bronze medal at the Pan American Championships.
