31 Mar 2019 17:25
Russian Kazbek Zankishiev won his country’s first and only gold medal in Tbilisi as he prevailed against a shot-shy Cancun Grand Prix bronze medallist Rafael Buzacarini (BRA). The Brazilian had never won an IJF gold medal and you could see why on this showing as he picked up three shidos to gift the gold medal to the Russian Hohhot Grand Prix silver medallist who now has a hat-trick of Grand Prix titles.
In the first semi-final world number 65 Giuliano Loporchio (ITA) fell to Buzacarini after picking up three penalties. In the second semi-final The Hague Grand Prix bronze medallist Michael Korrel (NED) was penalised for the third and final time for passivity in golden score to send Zankishiev into the final.
The first bronze medal was won by Korrel who dominated world number 83 Cedric Olivar (FRA) with a ippon seoi-nage and sode-tsurikomi-goshi seeing him past the Frenchman for his seventh Grand Prix medal.
The second bronze medal went to Marrakech Grand Prix bronze medallist Mukhammadkarim Khurramov who saw off Loporchio with two waza-ari scores in the penultimate contest of the U100kg category.
