Weiss and Taube shine for Germany
26 Oct 2013 18:30
Gold was for Nami Inamori who kept the honour high for Japan taking the third gold and the final victory in the medal tally. Inamori defeated German Carolin Weiss. The German heavyweight started off well with three wins against Vaillancourt (CAN), Yerzhanova (KAZ) and Garcia (CUB) in the semi final. Twenty seconds for the end of the match it was Inamori who caught Weiss in oseikomi.
Weiss’s compatriot Clarissa Taube won bronze after one minute fighting with the last twenty seconds in a comfortable oseikomi position against Cuban Garcia. Again a medal for German women’s successcoach Claudiu Pusa, four in total and five for Germany. Taube had lost against the Japanese in the quarter final but succeeded to overcome the next two opponents.
Ivana Sutalo couldn’t complete the trio that won medals at last year’s European Championships in Porec. She and the Matic sisters won silver, but today she won two matches and lost two, the last against Brazilian super heavyweight Facchiolli who won the bronze.
