2007 World champion Luciano Correa of Brazil topped the U100kg medal podium with a memorable showing in Dusseldorf. A battle of former world kingpins was denied as Kazach Maxim Rakov was unable to compete in the final due to injury.

The 31-year old Correa triumphed over former Olympic champion NAIDAN Tuvshinbayar (MGL) in the first semi-final on shido penalties with two against the latter and only one against the Brazilian. In the second semi-final contest 2009 world champion Maxim Rakov subdued Abu Dhabi Grand Prix bronze medallist Karl-Richard Frey by shime-waza after two minutes after some methodical ne-waza but sustained a rib injury which forced him out of the final. 

 

The first bronze medal was won by 2008 Olympic Champ Naidan  who overwhelmed Sergei Samojlovich in the last 15 seconds with a kami-shiho-gatame sealing a win by wazari-awasette-ippon after the veteran Mongolian opened the scoring with a waza-ari. The second medal was won by the ever-improving Rafael Buzacarini who battled past German judoka Frey  by submitting him with a ude-garami.
