Slovenian heavyweight Enej Marinic is relieved now that he has secured a spot at the greatest tournament of his career after all. Marinic was surprised by the opportunity that arose when Russian heavyweight Inal Tasoev was forced to withdraw from the games because the Russian Judo Federation pulled back all its athletes. An opportunity for Marinic who knew nothing last Saturday and finally got the redeeming word today.

Earlier, JudoInside wrote that for the programmer in AI, there was not even a digital solution, but miracles were not yet out of the world and Marinic may prepare for the Games.
In 2004, his compatriot Urska Zolnir was surprised by a wild card which she then cashed in at the Athens Games with a bronze medal. She later even became an Olympic champion in 2012.
