Junior World Championships gold medallist Sanne Vermeer of the Netherlands earned her first senior IJF gold medal with a win over teammate and Dutch Marrakech Grand Prix bronze medallist Geke Van Den Berg (NED). Vermeer opened the scoring with a waza-ari and held down her international colleague for 10 seconds to wrap up gold in just 42 seconds.
In the first semi-final Van Den Berg bested world number 21 Maylin Del Toro Carvajal (CUB) by ippon while in the second semi-final Ekaterinburg Grand Slam silver medallist Lucy Renshall (GBR) fell to Vermeer from a te-waza movement in golden score.
The first bronze medal contest was won by former European Games winner Martyna Trajdos (GER) after 21 seconds of added time as the German judoka threw with ashi-waza in the opening contest of the final block.
The second bronze medal was won by Del Toro Carvajal who narrowly saw off world number 23 Edwige Gwend (ITA) by a waza-ari score to win her first medal on the IJF World Judo Tour.
