The gold medal for women U57kg at the Masters in Guadalajara was again for Sumiya Dorjsuren who prolonged her title again. The Mongolian number one of the world defeated Helene Receveaux in the final. A seoi nage halfway the match was enough for a yuko and the victory.

Sumiya Dorjsuren won her first match against Sanne Verhagen (NED) and continued in a tough match against Nekoda Davis (GBR). In the final Lien (TPE) was defeated by wazari and again French Receveaux was able to qualify for the final. She keeps surprising in her internal battle with European champion Automne Pavia. She started well against 2013 Rafaela Silva (BRA). She beat Marti Malloy (USA) and the third Pan American Catherine Beauchemin-Pinard (CAN) in the semi final.

Hedvig Karakas won the bronze medal at the Masters with one penalty difference against Catherine Beauchemin-Pinard. The second bronze was for Kim Jan-Di who benefit of four penalties today’s sensation Lien Chen-Ling of Chinese Taipeh, in a boring bronze final. Earlier Lien defeated her friend Kaori Matsumoto of Japan. Lien who’s living in japan trains with Matsumoto, but took revenge for some earlier losses this time which makes Lien an outsider for an Olympic stunt.

Matsumoto won the Masters in 2010 and 2012, but now Sumiya Dorjsuren won this precious title for the third time in a row.
