Uzbek Sardor Nurillaev ensured a golden double for the Uzbekistan men’s team on day one. Nurillaev beat African Championships gold medallist Mohamed Abdelmawgoud (EGY) by ippon from an armbar in a contest where the Uzbek dominated from start to finish.

Tashkent Grand Prix silver medallist  and world number 27 captured his first IJF World Judo Tour title just minutes after his countryman Sharafuddin Lutfillaev (UZB) swept through the U60kg division.

In the first semi-final Olympic champion Beslan Mudranov (RUS) was unable to take part due to a knee injury which meant that Nurillaev advanced to the final. In the second semi-final world silver medallist Yerlan Serikzhanov (KAZ) was shocked by Abdelmawgoud who countered the Kazakh for ippon.

The first bronze medal was won by Serikzhanov after Tashkent Grand Prix bronze medallist Shakhram Akhadov (UZB) picked up his third shido and was disqualified.                                         

The second bronze medal went to Sebastian Seidl (GER) who was due to face Mudranov but the Russian had already withdrawn before the semi-final stage.
