Cadet European Championships gold medallist Lasha Bekauri (GEO) won his fourth competition in a row and the most important title of his career with a flurry of ippons. Tbilisi-based Bekauri erased the hopes of former Cadet Asian Championships bronze medallist Nakahashi Daiki (JPN) in the final by ippon.

As the latter tried to manoeuvre to get behind his opponent and the Georgian anticipated it and countered for the maximum score.

In the first semi-final Bekauri lifted up Teplice Cadet European Cup winner Adam Stodolski (POL) with a huge ura-nage for ippon. In the second semi-final unknown Ayman Elhoussaini (MAR) was thrown by Nakahashi via his sublime uchi-mata after 27 seconds. 

The first bronze medal was clinched by Cadet European Championships bronze medallist Armen Agaian (RUS) against Elhoussaini as the Russian ended the contest with its only score in the form of a waza-ari from a koshi-guruma.

The second bronze medal was won by EYOF winner Muhammed Koc (TUR) who defeated Stodolski after two minutes of golden score with a ko-uchi-gake for a medal-winning waza-ari
