Majlinda Kelmendi retained her 52kg world title at the World Judo Championships yesterday, representing Kosovo. Due to political recognition complications, though, she sometimes represents Albania. Either way, she is looking like the favorite for an Olympic medal in this weight class in 2016 so far - in which case, either Kosovo or Albania would get its 1st medal in any Games. I'm rooting for you, Majlinda.
