Algerian judoka Fethi Nourine won the African Open in Port Louis in 2014. The African Championships winner returns to the IJF’s marquee event for the first time since his Worlds debut in 2014. NOURINE will have fond memories of that day having recorded an emphatic win over Anass HOUSSEIN (DJI) by scoring four times without reply. In the next round the Algerian judoka went the distance with Kamal KHAN-MAGOMEDOV (RUS) as he bowed out on penalties while the Russian went on to win bronze.
