The last final of the day and of the individual tournament opposed the silver medallist of the Asia-Oceania Junior championships, Matsumura Sosuke (JPN), and the silver medallist of the junior European Championships Erik Abramov (GER). Not impressed by the already consistent harvest of the day for the Japanese team, and by the difference in weight, Abramov bravely tried his luck, but, without having anything to regret, he finally succumbed to the attacks of Matsumura, who scored waza-ari before concluding with an immobilization.

In the first bronze medal contest Edouard Capelle of Belgium was facing the bronze medallist of the last Junior Europeans Sipocz Richard (HUN). Only a few seconds were necessary for Sipocz to score a classic left handed uchi-mata for a clear ippon.

The second and last bronze medal contest saw Kim Minjong (KOR), bronze medallist of the last World Championships in Tokyo, and Luka Lomidze (FRA) facing for the last spot on the podium. Taking his time to put his hands on the judogi and to put his opponent in the ideal position to launch his shoulder movements, the senior world medalist finally found the solution and threw Lomidze for a waza-ari, concluded immediately with an immobilization for ippon.
