World Judo Masters bronze medallist Iida Kentaro of Japan swept away the opposition in Düsseldorf as he secured his second Grand Slam title. The young Japanese star took the final to world champion Cho Guham (KOR) and caught the owner of the red backpatch with a de-ashi-barai that had the crowd purring in satisfaction. Cho relentlessly attempted his low seoi-nage to no avail.

In the first semi-final Iida trapped European Championships bronze medallist Zelym Kotsoiev (AZE) in a tate-shiho-gatame hold for ippon. In the second semi-final Cho forced Cancun Grand Prix silver medallist Laurin Boehler (AUT) to concede a third penalty for passity and the owner of the red backpatch progressed into the final.

The first bronze medal was won by Boehler who launched the hague grand prix bronze medallist Leonardo Goncalves (bra) for ippon after 35 seconds of golden score.

The second bronze medal went to world number 25 Kotsoiev who showcased his ashi-waza to defeat world number 61 Bojan Dosen (SRB) as the young Azeri secured a spot on a Grand Slam podium for the first time.
