Aslan Kambiev concludes the competition with gold for Russia

The last final of the 2013 edition of the Judo Grand Prix in Abu Dhabi opposed Dutchman Roy Meyer and Russian Aslan Kambiev. A first penalty was given to the Russian for not having respected the limit of the competition area. Then Meyer was also penalised for passivity.
But the Kambiev's legs and arms were too long for the Dutch to avoid a terrific uchi-mata, which concluded two days of great judo at the ADNEC, Abu Dhabi.
The last two bronze medal fights of the day went to Andre Breitbarth (GER) who defeated Ushangi Kokauri (AZE) and to Boltoboy Baltaev (UZB). Leading by a waza-ari, the Azerbaijan judoka had great difficulties to maintain the score to his advantage, but at the end was able to raise his arm.
