Japan ended the International Judo Federation (IJF) Paris Grand Slam on top of the standings with seven gold medals while France and Mongolia made up the podium with three and two golds, respectively.

Sotaro Fujiwara won Japan's first gold medal of the day as he beat Tato Grigalashvili by ippon in the men's under-81-kilograms weight class.

It is the 23-year-old's fourth Grand Slam victory and second in Paris following a 2019 triumph.

At the previous two events in the French capital, Fujiwara had to settle for bronze medals.

However, he beat Uzbekistan's Sharofiddin Boltaboev in the semi-final while Sami Chouchi of Belgium, who lost to Grigalashvili, claimed the other bronze medal.

Fujiwara's compatriot Sanshiro Murao then emulated his team-mate's success with a four-minute win against Mammadali Mehdiyev of Azerbaijan in the men's under-90kg class.

It marked Mehdiyev's fourth silver medal in a Grand Slam, while his only victory came in the 2019 Düsseldorf competition.

Frenchwoman Margaux Pinot put a temporary stop to Japan's dominance by subjecting defending champion Saki Niizoe to defeat in the women's under-70kg division.

Pinot, who won gold at the Tokyo 2020 mixed team event, was awarded a points victory after a tense 4min 29sec duel.

Double Olympic medallist Audrey Tcheuméo denied Japan again with a win over Mami Umeki in the women's under-78kg class.

The five-time European champion secured her fifth Paris Grand Slam title and seventh overall after 4min.

Toma Nikiforov defeated Israeli Peter Paltchik in the men's under-100kg final to claim Belgium's only gold medal in Paris.

Despite being two-time European champion it is just the second Grand Slam victory for Nikiforov.

Wakaba Tomita won the last women's tournament in the over-78kg event in just two and a half minutes over France's Romane Dicko.

It was an unexpected result as Dicko has never lost in a Grand Slam final and was tipped to add to her gold and bronze medals at Tokyo 2020.

Tsetsentsengel took the last gold medal available with what turned out to be a routine victory against Azerbaijian's Ushanhi Kokauri in the men's over-100kg.

Tel Aviv in Israel is set to hold the next Grand Slam from February 17 to 19.
