2014 Chelyabinsk World Championships Preview -48kg

The -48kg division is likely to see a either Mongolia's 2013 World Champion Urantsetseg Munkhbat or Brazil's 2012 Olympic Champion Sarah Menezes take the gold. As it is, their IJF ranking is 1st and 2nd place.

Munkhbat, who is very unorthodox and has many sankaku variations probably has a slight advantage due to her very strong groundwork.

The relative newcomer from Japan, Ami Kondo, might prove to be a dark horse. She is not ranked in the Top 10 but in the 2013 Tokyo Grand Slam, she managed to beat both Munkhbat and Menezes.
