The most interesting fight among women at Grand Prix Ivan Yarygin – 2022 may be the battle between World Championship medalist and two-time European champion Olga Khoroshavtseva and Rio Olympic champion, Tokyo bronze medalist Helen Marulis from the USA (up to 57 kg category). Olga Khoroshavtseva has been fighting in the categories up to 53 and 55 kg for the last 2 years but aiming a new Olympic cycle, she has returned to the category fighting up to 57 kg. Helen Marulis, on the contrary, after winning in Rio in the category up to 53 kg, moved to the category up to 57 kg and has already managed to take a bronze in Tokyo and the World Championship in Oslo.
