European junior silver medallist Acelya Toprak is an outstanding talent with a bright future ahead of her. 

The 24-year-old won her silver back in 2017 and has gone from strength to strength ever since, gained valuable experience at the 2022 European Championships. 

She has also shown her class in the Continental Cup, winning gold at the Dubrovnik European Cup in 2021. 

And with the Commonwealth Games in Birmingham on the horizon, the exciting judoka has an excellent opportunity to show what she is made of this summer. 

Judo
In competitive judo, judoka (judo practitioners) aim to throw, pin or force their rival into a submission which is signalled by saying the word "maitta," or by tapping the mat or the opponent at least twice.
