Tamerlan Bashaev of Russia struck Grand Slam gold for the first time in his career by defeating Olympic bronze medallist Or Sasson (ISR) in the closing seconds of their +100kg final. World Judo Masters bronze medallist Bashaev dropped under his Israeli rival with his trademark seoi-nage for a waza-ari score with four seconds left on the clock to end the tournament on a high for the hosts.

In the first semi-final Tel Aviv Grand Prix bronze medallist Anton Krivobokov (RUS) lost out against Bashaev by ippon from a ko-uchi-gake. In the second semi-final Sasson beat World Judo Masters bronze medallist David Moura (BRA) by ippon to move into the heavyweight final.

The first bronze medal was won by Moura who launched Düsseldorf Grand Slam bronze medallist Stephan Hegyi (AUT) with an uchi-mata for ippon after two minutes. The second bronze medal went to double Olympic bronze medallist Rafael Silva (BRA) who floored Krivobokov with an o-soto-gari for ippon.

Preview Pan American Judo Championships Lima

24 Apr 2019 10:35

Brazil and Canada seemed to be the two most dominant nations in this moment at the forthcoming Judo Pan American Championships held in Lima, Peru, this week. The Pan Americans are strong at level in both heavyweight categories but perhaps the most eye-catching division in for women U57kg.
