Russian Arman Adamian and countryman and five-time world medallist Kirill Denisov put on a classic final in the U100kg category in front of their home crowd. Adamian starred in the preliminaries with some devastating ippons and met a gritty veteran in Denisov with both men desperate to represent their country on the top of the medal podium.

In a changing of the guard for Russia, Rome European Open winner Adamian scored a waza-ari from a ura-nage and that was difference after four minutes as the 22-year-old newcomer wrapped up gold in only his second Grand Slam appearance

In the first semi-final Paris Grand Slam bronze medallist Peter Paltchik (ISR) was dismissed by Adamian by ippon from a ko-uchi-gake. In the second semi-final Denisov threw Cancun Grand Prix winner Niiaz Bilalov (RUS) with an o-uchi-gari for ippon.

The first bronze medal was won by Osaka Grand Slam silver medallist Shady El Nahas (CAN) who threw Bilalov for a waza-ari in golden score from a makikomi effort. The second bronze medal went to Paltchik who bested former world number one Michael Korrel (NED) by a waza-ari score from a counter attack.

Russian final U100kg with golden boy Ilyasov

The Russian team dominated the men’s tournament in Budapest. In the category U100kg it wasn’t any different with Niyaz Ilyasov (RUS) and Arman Adamian (RUS) persuading everyone in the category to agree, after a day of strong matches. Aside from the Russian onslaught, like Van ‘t End, in the lower category, wearing the red backpatch of a reigning world champion was not a guarantee of success. Jorge Fonseca (POR) lost in the semi-final, obviously not yet fully sharpened to repeat his Tokyo feat of 2019. Read more
