Double Olympic bronze medallist and two-time world champion Mayra Aguiar (BRA) was back on the top of an IJF medal podium for the first time since 2017 as she denied Germany a gold medal on home soil. Zagreb Grand Prix bronze medallist Anna Maria Wagner (GER) led the way for her country on the last day.

Wagner met a determined Aguiar who was all smiles as she returned to form by throwing her young German adversary with an o-soto-gari for a waza-ari score.

In the first semi-final Tel Aviv Grand Prix winner Klara Apotekar (SLO) was countered by Aguiar with ashi-waza for ippon and a place in the final. In the second semi-final Wagner threw two-time Olympic medallist and former world champion Audrey Tcheumeo (FRA) with an o-soto-gari and then held down the Frenchwoman for 10 seconds to advance to the gold medal contest.

The first bronze medal contest was won by former Hohhot Grand Prix winner Bernadette Graf (AUT) after a below-par Tcheumeo was penalised for a third time for passivity.    

The second bronze medal was won by Apotekar who used her frame to frustrate 17-time Grand Prix medallist Natalie Powell (GBR) who lost out by a waza-ari score from a sumi-gaeshi.

Winning finals is a quality. Just a gut feeling says that the Japanese understand that quality really well. Zooming into the stats, just confirms that the Japanese are true masters taking the gold in a final. Obviously Japan is the most successful nation and they take a lot of medals, so they also lost a few contests. Still the distribution of gold in finals is positively balanced by the Japanese.
