Former world champion Cho Guham of Korea defeated Tashkent Grand Prix silver medallist Zelym Kotsoiev (AZE) to win his country’s second gold medal on the final day of competition in Abu Dhabi. Cho outworked the 21-year-old Azeri for a narrow win after Kotsoiev was handed his third shido for passivity which was loudly backed by the crowd.

The cunning South Korean made himself look busy during golden score with a string of half-hearted attacks but in reality there was little intent as Cho is a master in this regard and left Kotsoiev frustrated while the former celebrated with his usual vigour.

In the first semi-final Cho profited from a wasteful golden score period from world number 11 Shady El Nahas (CAN) who received hansoku-make for three shidos.

In the second semi-final Kotsoiev overpowered 19-year-old Junior World Championships bronze medallist Mert Sismanlar (TUR) by ippon.

The first bronze medal was won by European Games winner Arman Adamian (RUS) who drove past Sismanlar with an o-soto-makikomi for ippon to claim his second Grand Slam medal.

The second bronze medal went to El Nahas who beat world number 73 Hussain Shah Shah (PAK) by ippon from a ko-uchi-gake after just 32 seconds.
