Black day for judo's brightest stars in Guadalajara
Text size Aa Aa

In Mexico for the World Masters Judo, Euroenews reporter Pedro Lasuen reflects on an unexpected day in Guadalajara: “The World Masters of Judo is a top tournament and the judoka have to be focused right from the start of the day to avoid any embarrassment. Day two promised finals full of favourites, but no the opposite in fact, the favourites dropped like flys on a black day for judo’s bright stars.”
The early elimination of a number of the favourites paved the way for Japan’s Miku Tashiro to take on Juul Franssen of the Netherlands in -63kg class final.

The American Travis Stevens got the better of Belgian Joachim Bottieau in a bout high on penalty points.
Britain’s Sally Conway produced the move of the day in the -70kg class throwing the Cuban Onix Cortés Aldana for ippon.”
