Bischof storms to victory in Germany


Germany’s Ole Bischof kept his composure to claim gold in the under 81 kilo category at the Judo Grand Prix in Düsseldorf on Sunday.

The world number four proved unstoppable en route to the top of the podium and struck early on in the final contest with this clinical ippon, leaving his opponent Alain Schmitt of France down and out.

The bronze medals were won by Azerbaijan’s Elnur Mammadli and France’s Loic Pietri.

In the women’s under 70 kilo category, Slovenia’s Rasa Sraka produced a stunning performance to take gold.

The world number 8 edged out Cuba’s Onix Cortes Aldama in the semi finals and never looked in trouble in the showpiece match where she downed Brazil’s Maria Portela.
