Alexios Ntanatsidis only needed two minutes to win the world title in the final. What a sensation for Greece to win the second ever World title. Tariel Zintiridis won gold in 2006 and Ilias Iliadis obviously two world titles in the seniors in 2010 and 2011. Alexios Ntanatsidis was impressive in his five matches against Lim (KOR), Duarte (ARG), Mehdiyev (AZE) and Gutsche (GER) in the semi final.

In the final Kenya Kohara of Japan was a strong opponent as he had beaten European challengers D’sAllesandro (Italy), Stewart (GBR) and Ressel (GER) in his road to the final, but there he didn’t get a chance.

Dominic Ressel crowned a great day with a bronze medal, not easy to fight his compatriot Robin Gutsche but a wazari made the difference in this match. Gutsche won his pool where Ressel lost his quarter final against Kohara but he won his last two matches.

Mammadali Mehdiyev (AZE) won bronze for Europe against Aslan Lappiganov (RUS) for a waza-ari. The Russian lost the semi final against Kohara who was clearly the best today. Mehdiyev was beaten by Alexios Ntanatsidis of Greece in the quarter final.
