Szandra Szogedi

Sandra Szogedi is the Secretary General of the Jamaica Judo Federation and the Head Coach for the sport of Judo in Jamaica.

A former gymnastic champion for Hungary, Szandra made the transition to Judo so seamless, while residing in Ghana, in becoming the first female athlete to represent that country at an Olympic Games which she achieved at the 2016 Rio Olympic Games.

She has competed in several international competitions including the Commonwealth Games and has many achievements; and in the last two years, she has dedicated her time and efforts in the sport to coaching talent which she hopes to transition to the Paralympic and Olympic stage where her dream was realised.
