Russia put in fine performances on the second day of the European Cup for Juniors in Leibnitz in Austria taking three gold medals. Nevertheless the field of medal winners was wide spread with fifteen nations earning at least one medal. In addition the hosts Austria were lucky today: two medals, one silver and one bronze in the men’s categories was an excellent result in such a big tournament in the inspiring area of the Austrian hills.

Wrapping things up and looking at the whole tournament Russia finished with 4 gold medals, followed by Azerbaijan with three and France with 2 titles. Host Austria finished in a credible seventh position with one medal of each colour. Overall 21 nations won a medal, Japan with 8 men only earned one Bronze, Judoka from 25 nations were ranked 1 to 7. Over the next few days many of the competitors will stay in Leibnitz to enjoy the training camp and the hospitality of Austria.
