Belgrade (dpa) - Prime Minister Isa Mustafa led the praise for judo champion Majlinda Kelmendi as Kosovo celebrated Monday a first Olympic gold medal.

"What many countries failed to achieve in decades ... our beloved Kosovo, with its brilliant heroine, Majlinda Kelmendi, did at their first Olympiad," Mustafa said.

Kelmendi, 25, beat Italy‘s Odette Giuffrida in the final of the 52-kilo category on Sunday in Rio de Janeiro.

The nation is making its Olympic debut in Rio eight years after its independence from Serbia, and after its Olympic Committee was recognized by the International Olympic Committee (IOC) in 2014.

Mustafa said on his Facebook page: "Kosovo today won the first Olympic medal as an independent and sovereign state and I am confident that our athletes will be unstoppable in the quest for medals over the coming years."

Kelmendi, who was also Kosovo‘s flag bearer at the opening ceremony Friday, told the Pristina daily Koha Net: "I am proud to have shown that young Kosovars can achieve great success in the sport."
