Tashiro Miku of Japan defeated former Tashkent Grand Prix winner Daria Davydova (RUS) to win her second Grand Slam gold medal.

World number seven and World Judo Masters bronze medallist and three-time world medallist Tashiro hooked in for an o-uchi-gari which sent her Russian rival over for the maximum score as the Japanese judoka topped a field which included Olympic champion Tina Trstenjak (SLO) but not Clarisse Agbegnenou (FRA) who picked up an injury in Paris.

In the first semi-final Lubjana Piovesana (GBR) was disqualified against Tashiro after accumulating three shidos. In the second semi-final Davydova shocked Osaka Grand Slam winner Doi Masako (JPN) by ippon.

The first bronze medal contest was won by Doi who pinned down Tel Aviv Grand Prix bronze medallist Sanne Vermeer (NED) with a kuzure-yoko-shiho-gatame for 20 seconds and ippon.

The second bronze medal was won by Paris Grand Slam bronze medallist Andreja Leski (SLO) who defeated Leski by a waza-ari score from a low uchi-mata.
