Asian-Pacific Championships silver medallist Mukhammadkarim Khurramov (UZB) doubled his country’s golden medal haul on day three after a fine win over Olympic silver medallist Elmar Gasimov (AZE). First-time Grand Slam finalist Khurramov took the final to veteran Gasimov who turned out of several attacks from the Uzbek who pushed the pace, under the instructions of Iliadis, until the Azeri was given his third shido for passivity.

In the first semi-final world champion Jorge Fonseca (POR) fell to Gasimov after 26 seconds of golden score. The formidable seoi-nage of Fonseca was blocked and the Azeri to control to register a waza-ari score and secure a place in the final.

In the second semi-final Tel Aviv Grand Prix bronze medallist Rafael Buzacarini (BRA) lost out to Khurramov by ippon as the Uzbek men’s team were on a roll on Sunday.

The first bronze medal was won by Brasilia Grand Slam bronze medallist Cirjenics Miklos (HUN) who dropped under Buzacarini with a morote-seoi-nage for ippon after two minutes to open his country’s medal account in Germany.

The second bronze medal went to Abu Dhabi Grand Slam silver medallist Zelym Kotsoiev (AZE) who earned a major scalp by beating misfiring world champion Fonseca. Kotsoiev had success with his o-uchi-gari on two occasions as he earned a waza-ari on both attacks to deny the Portuguese star with 54 seconds left on the clock.

Things are sometimes a little complicated when you have a right-handed and a left-handed competitor on the mat and the key is that opposite arm that seems impossible to reach. This is what happened between Kotsoiev and Wolf, but the Azerbaijani was clever enough to get one less penalty, to win a significant gold medal after a very good competition. Read more
