DOB: August 6, 1981
Career Highlights: One of the most decorated judoka at the London Games, Decosse is looking to add to her legacy with her first Olympic gold
medal. This will be her third Olympiad after winning silver at the 63 kilogram weight class in Beijing four years ago. She
fell just short of having a chance at the podium in Athens, losing to Argentina's Daniela Krukower in the quarterfinals. She's
dominated at the 70 and 63 kg weight class, combining to win gold at three world championships and four European championships.
She’s the reigning world champion and the top-ranked judoka in the world in her division. Overall, Decosse has won 39 gold
medals in various competitions and has a staggering 198-44 career record. Adding an Olympic gold medal would only cap a dazzling
career. She’s always a contender, and she may be on a mission this summer.
