Ilana Kratysh will be the first-ever Israeli woman to compete in the wrestling events at the Olympic Games after securing her place in Rio on Saturday.

The 25-year-old became the 30th Israeli to book her spot in Brazil after winning the World Qualification Tournament in Ulaanbaatar, Mongolia.

Kratysh, a four-time European Championships silver medalist in the under-69 kilogram event, suffered a surprise defeat in the first round of the European Qualification Tournament just last week. But she bounced back in impressive fashion in Mongolia, beating Maria Acosta of Venezuela 5-0 in the final.
