Aldi De Oliveira shows golden Brazilian brilliance

Aldi De Oliveira of Brazil won all four of his contests in Chile to capture Cadet World gold at the first attempt. The ne-waza level of De Oliveira surpassed his rivals and that was the difference in the final when he strung together a beautiful combination to defeat Maksud Ochilov (UZB). Cadet Pan American Championships winner De Oliveira threw his Asian opponent with a controlled tomoe-nage to setup the decisive juji-gatame from which Ochilov was forced to submit.

In the first semi-final De Oliveira defeated EYOF and Cadet European Championships bronze medallist Ejder Toktay (TUR) by a waza-ari score. The Brazilian scored with 26 seconds left on the clock from a koshi-waza attack and his Turkish opponent could not find a response in the closing seconds. In the second semi-final 16-year-old Ochilov – who finished fifth at the Cadet World Championships – outlasted Cadet European Championships bronze medallist Abdulaziz Kara (TUR) on shido penalties as the latter received hansoku-make for a third infringement.

The first bronze medal was claimed by 16-year-old EYOF silver medallist Daan Moes (NED) in golden score when Kara was penalised for passivity and it was his third infringement so the Turkish fighter was disqualified and his Dutch victor fell to his knees in celebration.

The second bronze medal went to EYOF winner Feczko Csanad (HUN) who secured world honours with one of the throws of the day. The Hungarian beat Toktay by ippon with a majestic utsuri-goshi and his burgeoning career continues to move forward and win admirers.
