Canadian Christa Deguchi successfully defended her Paris title with a win over teammate and World Judo Masters bronze medallist Jessica Klimkait in the U57kg final. The duo are locked in a battle for Canada’s one potential spot at the Olympics next year with both ranked well inside the world’s top 10 on the IJF ranking list.
World bronze medallist Deguchi extended her one-sided record against Klimkait to 4-0 as the world number seven narrowly beat the world number five by a waza-ari score from a last-ditch o-soto-gari with five seconds left in the contest.
In the first semi-final 2018 Paris Grand Slam bronze medallist Kim Jisu (KOR) was pinned down by Deguchi for 20 seconds. In the second semi-final Klimkait beat Düsseldorf Grand Slam bronze medallist Lkhagvatogoo Enkhriilen (MGL) who picked up her third shido in golden score.
The first bronze medal was won by World Judo Masters bronze medallist Tamaoki Momo (JPN) who thwarted Lkhagvatogoo inside the opening minute with osaekomi for 20 seconds and her fifth Grand Slam medal. The second bronze medal was won by Kim who unceremoniously sent Olympic champion Rafaela Silva (BRA) over flat onto her back with a o-uchi-gari after one minute of golden score.
