Whitebooi is currently partaking in international events as she aims to qualify for the Paris Olympic Games in 2024.

Sharing on her Instagram page after her performance, Whitebooi said: “Today (Saturday) I got the opportunity to represent South African Judo at the Dubrovnik Senior European Cup 2022. It is always a blessing to step on the mat for my country.

“I received a silver medal,” she added.

“Losing a final match is never easy; it is not a great feeling at all. However, there is a saying that losing is part of the game. If you never lose, you are never truly tested, and never forced to grow.

“Small steps to the ultimate goal = Paris Olympic Games 2024,” she concluded.
