Russia’s Maksim Khramtcov was the other winner today in the men's under-80kg competition.

The home crowd roared him on as he defeated Saleh Elsharabaty of Jordan 29-11 in the final.

Croatia’s Toni Kanaet had been unable to fight his semi-final against Khramtcov due to injury, but shared bronze with Maksim Rafalovich of Uzbekistan. 

The event followed a season opening Grand Prix leg in Rome.

It will be followed by a third event in Taoyuan, Chinese Taipei from September 19 to 21.
