Nemanja Majdov, a judoka from Crvena Zvezda, a club sponsored by our company, Millennium Team, won a gold medal at the World Championship in Budapest (up to 90 kilograms) and managed to once again make a great contribution to the sports history of our country. Majdov won the title of world champion in a day that can freely be called an anthological one, by winning all seven of his matches. Nemanja Majdov brought joy to us one more time, only this time with a golden medal, a dream of every professional athlete but reserved for only the best of them.

I have believed in myself, I trained a lot, but I was not sure whether I was going to make it.  I felt a certain sense of obligation, and I said to myself that I have to succeed. Every match was difficult and I had seven of them. Never before had I ever had so much matches in a professional competition, world champion Nemanja Majdov stated.

At the World Championship for Seniors, Serbian judoka Nemanja Majdov found himself among excellent fighters, the elite. It was an extremely difficult path to the finals, seven memorable matches for the world’s golden medal. Asley Gonzalez, runner-up in the Olympic Games and the world's golden champion, was Nemanja's opponent for the start. Serbian judoka took his opponent down on the ippon. He defeated Islam Bozbayev from Kazakhstan with the same result, 10:0. Zvezda’s judoka successfully won his opponents one after another, as expected by the sports public. Majdov also defeated a judoka from Congo, Aalen Le Boa with 10: 0. He took excellent Portuguese Selio Dias down on the ippon. Nemanja also took the Georgian Uhangi Margiani down with a Wazari in order to enter the semi-finals.  Domestic judoka, a Hungarian Krisztian Toth could not find a way to defeat Majdov not even after an exhausting match, in the overtime and golden point which lasted for more than five minutes. Not even the excellent Slovenian Mihael Žgank did succeed to derail the Serbian and now world champion. In the fight for the gold medal, Majdov showed that he is a world-class fighter and thus he entered in the history of Serbian judo as the first World Senior Champion.
