Russia had a great Grand Prix in Tashkent and Ksenia Chibisova completed the party with gold +78kg. The last female match of the weekend opposed Kim Hayun (KOR) and Kseniia Chibisova (RUS), who took only 23 seconds to score ippon with a massive attack giving no chance to Kim.

The first final for the bronze medal was between Sara Alvarez (ESP) and Sarah Adlington (GBR), holder of 4 bronze medals in Grand Prix so far. After the four minutes, nothing was written on the scorecard. But it only took a few seconds during the extra time for Adlington to finally throw her opponent on a makikomi. Fifth bronze medal in Grand Prix for the British.

Milica Zabic (SRB) was the first in action against Raz Hershko (ISR) in the second match for the bronze medal. Scoring a first waza-ari on a shoulder movement, she reproduced her effort a few seconds later thanks to a spectacular morose-seoi-nage which literally propelled Hershko in the air, before she landed flat back, for this time a perfect ippon.
