Lasha Shavdatuashvili picked up a knee injury in the final of the IJF Grand Prix in Budapest, where he was leading the match with wazari against Victor Scvortov (UAE).

The Georgian star looked really in pain after he didn't succeed to finish his O-soto-gari attack against Moldavian with UAE passport.

It seems that injury is very serious for Shavdautashvili, but in Budapest it was not possible to do any accurate diagnosis. Lasha is unable to walk at the moment.

More information about his health condition and medical research will be done when he gets back in Georgia.

 

So far the information cannot be confirmed by the doctors, but Shavdautashvili suffered a cruciate knee ligament and unfortunately he is out for the World Championships.

Also in U66kg we will not see French David Larose who is not ready for the World Championships in Chelyabinsk due to his knee surgery.
