Muna Dahouk fled from Syria in 2019 to join her mother in the Netherlands.
She started judo in Damascus when she was only 6, with her sister – who also still competes in judo – thanks to their dad, who was a judo teacher.
She never stopped and now competes in the -63kg category. Besides a sporting career, she graduated from a commercial and banking institute in Syria and started studying sport once she arrived in the Netherlands.
She was included in the IJF Refugee Team at the 2019 Budapest Grand Prix, and participated in the Paris Grand Slam and Düsseldorf Grand Slam in 2020.
She competed as part of the IOC Refugee Olympic Team for Tokyo 2020 in the mixed team and -63kg events
