Tuggerah’s Kido Judo Mingara Judo Academy athlete, Danny Vojnikovich, has been selected for the Australian team that will contest the Cadet World Championships in Kazakhstan later this year.
Vojnikovich’s selection comes off the back of a strong performance for team Australia during the Asian Pacific Championships in Taipei.
His recent training stint with the Japanese UBE team was also taken into consideration by selectors.
The Cadet World Championships is an elite event with previous experience on the international event circuit a prerequisite for selection.
Vojnikovich’s Coach, Pete Acciari, said his pupil had trained hard and was now on the cusp of an elite career.
“He is just at the beginning of his high-level performance career.
“He has the ability and determination to follow in the footsteps of former successful club members at the international level,” Acciari said.
Vojnikovich will compete in the 73kg division.
