Mikhailo Svidrak and Snizhana Plish have won places for the Ukrainian judo team which is set to compete at the Chengdu 2021 FISU Games.

The pair, representing the Classical University of Ternopil, prevailed in the 18th edition of the Ukrainian Summer Universiade which pits higher education students from across the country against each other.

At the event in Lutsk, Svidrak was particularly impressive as he did not concede a single waza-ari.

The 22-year-old then won in style in the final as he delivered a crushing ippon for the gold medal.

He competes in the men's under-81-kilograms category and has previously taken bronze medals in the Warsaw European Open and Riga Senior European Cup, this year and in 2022, respectively.

Plish faced a tighter battle in her women's under-57kg weight class after moving up from the under-52kg division.

The 20-year-old's best international finish came at the European Cadets Championships in 2018.

The judo competitions at Chengdu 2021 are set to take place from July 31 to August 3 this year at the Cultural and Sports Centre Gymnasium in Jianyang City.

Since Ukraine's first appearance at the Summer World University Games, the country has amassed one gold, five silver and 17 bronze medals.

The gold came courtesy of Viktoriia Turks in the women's under-78kg contest at Shenzhen 2011.

The Games were supposed to take place in 2021 but were postponed multiple times due to the COVID-19 pandemic and a clash of dates with the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games.
