World Judo Masters winner and world number four Abe Kana (JPN) defeated teammate Tashiro Miku (JPN) as Japan picked up from where they finished day one with a gold medal triumph. Abe gained a slender advantage when former Junior World Championships winner Tashiro received a shido for passivity after both judoka had already been penalised for the same indiscretion. 19-year-old Tashiro failed to change her tactics and received a third shido which was one more than Abe received after the latter picked up only one more for passivity.

Abe booked her place in the final by defeating World Judo Masters bronze medallist Joung Da-Woon (KOR) with a beautiful uchi-mata which earned ippon with 90 seconds remaining. The Japanese had judoka opened the scoring with a waza-ari from a ko-uchi-gari. In the second semi-final Tashiro bested Anne-Laure Bellard who received a direct hansoku-make for attempting a standing waki-gatame. The first bronze medal was won by Joung who recovered from her semi-final defeat to outperform Tashkent Grand Prix winner Mariana Barros (BRA) after the Brazilian accumulated four shido penalties for passivity to receive hansoku-make. The second bronze medal was claimed by Miami Grand Prix silver medallist Tanaka Miki as bellard could not fight due to an injury sustained in her unsuccessful semi-final effort.
