Japan’s third gold medal in Chile came courtesy of 17-year-old Yuki Ayano who edged past Cadet Pan American Championships winner Gabriella Moraes (BRA) in golden score. The Brazilian was second best during regulation time but had done enough to force golden score by not conceding a score.

A shido for a false attack saw Moraes – who appeared to be troubled by an existing injury – take silver as Yuki could look forward to climbing to the top of the podium.

In the first semi-final Yuki bested 16-year-old Cadet European Championships silver medallist Annabelle Winzig of Germany by a waza-ari score. In the second semi-final Moraes had a waza-ari advantage when her opponent 16-year-old Kim Su Yon (PRK) had to withdraw due to injury.

The first bronze medal was claimed by Mariam Tchanturia (GEO) as Kim could not compete due to injury. Tchanturia, who won her previous contest with a sensational ura-nage, showed that the Georgian team are making good on their promise to bring the women's ranks up to the level of their revered men's team.     

The second bronze medal was won by Winzig who conquered Meriem Khilifi (TUN) by ippon for the final place on the -63kg medal podium.
