She sent them into fits of ecstasy in the -48kgs final as she quickly disposed on her plucky Russian challenger, Lioubov Brouletova, in just 25 seconds with a swift Uchi-mata for Ippon. Nomura then followed her in even more impressive fashion by despatching Bu-Kyung Jung of South Korea in just 10 seconds in the -60kgs final, although Jung later said in the press conference that he felt the throw merited just a Waza-ari.
