Pan American Championships silver medallist Lewis Medina, produced his best judo at his continental championships in April. Medina conquered Isao CARDENAS (MEX), former world silver medallist Jose ARMENTEROS (CUB) and L.A. SMITH III (USA) all by ippon before running out of steam against former Junior World Championships runner-up Leonardo GONCALVES (BRA) in the final. Medina has a habit of accumulating unnecessary shido penalties.
