The final U48kg of the 2014 edition of the Judo Grand Prix in Tashkent linked Turkish Sumeyye Akkus to Charline Van Snick. The Belgian who needed to enter the golden score to secure her first victory of the season after a bronze medal in Zagreb last September. A further 52 seconds of added time was required following the regular four minutes before Van Snick scored a yuko for the victory as both judoka took an eternity to return to their feet after a lung-busting contest.

The first bronze medal of the category went to the winner of the 2014 edition of the Samsun Grand Prix, Irina Dolgova (RUS), who defeated Ebru Sahin (TUR), with two waza-ari, the second waza-ari being scored with a well-controlled ko-uchi-gari. The second bronze medal opposed Valentina Moscatt (ITA) and Otgontsetseg Galbadrakh (MGL). The first four minutes of the regular time were not enough to differentiate the two athletes, but only 13 seconds in the golden score were enough for GALBADRAKH to score a small yuko with a sutemi-waza to win the bronze medal.
