Adventures in Moldova writes about “two village kids from the poorest country in Europe” who did extremely well at the judo “Olympic Hopes” tournament in Kyiv, Ukraine: “In Eugen and Mihail's under-46 kg weight class, there were 34 boys. Our boys not only made our village proud, but they should make the entire country proud; Eugen was the only Moldovan in the entire tournament to win gold.”
