Peter Paltchik of Israel took U100kg gold to extend his winning run to nine consecutive contests on the IJF World Judo Tour. Abu Dhabi Grand Slam winner Paltchik has excelled this year and moved closer to the leading judoka in the category with a blistering display on Sunday. World number 36 Sviryd claimed his first IJF medal despite going over after 89 seconds of golden score from a seoi-nage before both men shared a lengthy embrace.

In the first semi-final Pan American Championships gold medallist Leonardo Goncalves (BRA) lost out to Sviryd by a waza-ari score. In the second semi-final Paris Grand Slam winner Michael Korrel (NED) was rolled over by Paltchik for a waza-ari score to deny the Netherlands a place in the U100kg final.

The first bronze medal was won by Korrel after World Judo Masters bronze medallist Cirjenics Miklos (HUN) managed to pick up three penalties after just two minutes. Cirjenics stepped out to receive his final penalty after an insipid display as Dutchman Korrel looked shocked at the manner of his victory.                                                          

The second bronze medal went to Goncalves who shaded Cancun Grand Prix bronze medallist Rafael Buzacarini (BRA) by a single waza-ari score in a domestic duel which keeps the younger judoka in pole position for Tokyo 2020. World number 34 Buzacarini was on the receiving end of a ura-nage from world number 26 Goncalves which was the only score in the contest.
