Croatia has decided to move to Azerbaijan. In addition to Cvjetko, Dominik Druzeta also sneaked into a final, as if title-hungry Croats. However, Druzeta had to disarm Vedat Albayrak in Baku’s Grand Slam final U81kg. Albayrak was unflappable and flawless in each and every one of his duels, all of a high level, against Uzbek Tursunov, Azeri Hajiyev and the Canadian Gauthier-Drapeau.

In fifteen seconds Albayrak did utsuri-goshi without moving his opponent’s leg out of the way. His name is Vedat Albayrak.

Finally, it is not that we like to repeat ourselves when talking about the medal table, but when 17 of the 29 countries present in Baku obtain a medal in the first two days.
