An all Russian final in the last bout of the individual World Cadet Championships in Sarajevo. Top seed and Cadet European Championships silver medallist Kemal Kaitov of Russia proved himself on the highest stage of his career as he held off Cadet European Championships winner Inal Tasoev (RUS) after 58 seconds in the O90kg final.

In the first semi-final top seed Kaitov defeated Cadet European Cup gold medallist Khurshed Madzhidov (TJK) by ippon with a left ko-soto-gake with 22 seconds left while in the second semi-final Tasoev (RUS) triumphed against 17-year-old EYOF winner Stephan Hegyi of Austria by holding down the Austrian for 15 seconds for his second and match-winning waza-ari.


The first bronze medal was won by Hegyi (AUT) against multiple-time Cadet European Cup medallist Aleks Molodeckij (LTU). The 1st Kyu Austrian beat the 2nd Kyu Lithuanian by a waza-ari score and despite being penalised for negative posture he contained his opponent with relative ease. The second bronze medal was captured by Madzhidov (TJK) as Lithuania again finished on the wrong side with national u23 silver medallist Ignas Mecajus (LTU) this time losing out by two yuko scores.
