The Delicate Fighter

Twenty-six years ago a girl named Claudia Nitu was born in Bucharest, Romania. At the same time a story was born. When life becomes the story of your dream, you become a hero.

Today, Claudia is several times Karate National Champion, unbeaten in national competitions in the past 10 years, 11 times European Champion at her style and 5 times World Champion at her style. Claudia managed to get third place at WKF Karate World Championship, a competition that brings together the best athletes in the four WKF styles: Shotokan, Shito Ryu, Goju Ryu and Wado Ryu. This is the best performance ever achieved by a Romanian in the strongest Karate competition held by the most powerful Karate Federation in the world. Claudia has received “Romanian Sport Laureate ” awards by the National Agency for Sport, “2005 Laureate of the Dinamo Club – Bucharest”, in the same year she has been coming out in the top 10 athletes of the same club.

In this episode I will try to capture with my photo camera moments from the life of Claudia and her colleagues, exceptional people that I had the chance to know and with whom I spent some unforgettable years.
