Japan's national champion Yuya Yoshida defeated former world bronze medallist Dilshod Choriev from Uzbekistan at Tyumen's Grand Slam to take his career to new heights in Russia. Former Tokyo Grand Slam bronze medallist Yoshida won his first Grand Slam gold by downing Choriev with a waza-ari score.

In the first semi-final Choriev pulled away from Baku Grand Slam bronze medallist Murat Gasiev (RUS) by scoring a waza-ari after both judoka had received two shido penalties for passivity. In the second semi-final former Dusseldorf Grand Prix winner Yoshida defeated Tyumen’s Grigorii Sulemin (RUS). Yoshida opened the scoring with a waza-ari from a reverse morote seoi-nage and with a minute left he scored a second by rolling Sulemin after he failed with a uchi-mata attempt.


The first bronze medal was won by the local fighter Sulemin as a result of Tbilisi Grand Prix silver medallist Walter Facente (ITA) making crucial mistake as he grabbed the leg of his opponent to receive hansoku-make. The second bronze medal was won by Samsun Grand Prix bronze medallist Magomed Magomedov (RUS) who rushed past Gasiev by ippon in 54 seconds.
