Olympic champion Tina Trstenjak of Slovenia won her first IJF gold medal since January 2018 as she thwarted Paris Grand Slam bronze medallist Nami Nabekura (JPN) in golden score of the Grand Prix in Zagreb. Trstenjak won after one minute of added time after the Japanese judoka was guilty of a bear hug and picked up her third and final shido.

In the first semi-final Trstenjak saw off the challenge of European Games bronze medallist Sanne Vermeer (NED) after the Netherlands judoka picked up her third shido for passivity and was disqualified. In the second semi-final Nabekura threw Baku Grand Slam bronze medallist Juul Franssen (NED) for a waza-ari score and held down her Dutch opponent for 10 seconds for her second and match-winning waza-ari score.

The first bronze medal contest was won by Montreal Grand Prix gold medallist Cho Mokhee (KOR) who countered a weak attack by Franssen for a match-winning waza-ari score after two minutes of golden score.

The second bronze medal was won by Vermeer who pinned down Hohhot Grand Prix silver medallist Gili Sharir (ISR) with a sankaku-gatame to score her second and match-winning waza-ari.
