27 Aug 2015 14:15
Slovenian Tina Trstenjak is the world champion for the next two years. Trstenjak defeated Clarisse Agbegnenou of France in the final for women U63kg. It’s for the first time in history that Slovenia celebrates a world champion. The podium looks quite similar to last year with Tashiro Miku at bronze and Munkhzaya Tsedevsuren who won the bronze for Mongolia in a direct match against last year’s bronze medallist Yarden Gerbi of Israel.
Tina Trstenjak defeated the World Champion by waza-ari and a yuko but kept Agbegenou under pressure in the final. No penalty at all and Trstenjak kept the concentration on her assigmment to play her own game. The last match between the two at the Grand Prix of Zagreb was also won by the Slovenian, also in the final.
For Mongolia it was another bronze medal for a woman after Dorjsuren had won bronze U57kg now the young mother Tsedevsuren surprised Yarden Gerbi with a yuko for a takeover and an immediate holddown of Gerbi, but she escaped in the same speed she got into the narrow situation. It gave Gerbi a second chance but couldn’t get back in the match.
Miku Tashiro only needed to bow for the bronze medal match as Juul Franssen was disqualified due to a forbidden armlock where she brought Trstenjak to the ground after one minute in the semi final.
