Israel’s Sagi Muki thrilled the home fans when he struck men’s under-81 kilograms gold in a matter of seconds at the International Judo Federation Tel Aviv Grand Slam.

Muki needed just 12 seconds to secure the title as he stunned Turkey’s Vedat Albayrak with a huge uki-goshi to earn an ippon in the Israeli city.

Germany's Timo Cavelius and Canada's Gauthier Drapeau sealed the bronze medals.

France enjoyed a golden opening day in Tel Aviv with victories for Luka Mkheidze and Blandine Pont and increased their gold-medal tally courtesy of Margaux Pinot’s success.

There was little between Pinot and Miriam Butkereit in the women's under-70kg final before the Frenchwoman was awarded victory when her German opponent picked up her third penalty in extra time.

Belgium's Gabriella Willems and Australia's Aoife Coughlan secured the other places on the podium.

Catherine Beauchemin-Pinard backed up Jessica Klimkait's women's under-57kg success yesterday to deliver another gold for Canada.

The Olympic bronze medallist came up against a resilient Maylín del Toro Carvajal of Cuba in the women’s under-63kg final.

The Cuban battled hard but failed to register a score, while Beauchemin-Pinard got off the mark with an almost perfect kata-guruma.

Beauchemin-Pinard then battled hard on the floor as she pinned del Toro Carvajal with an armlock for ippon.

Laura Fazliu of Kosovo and Britain's Lucy Renshall claimed the bronze medals.

The other gold medal was won by Switzerland's Nils Stump who pulled off a waza-ari with a sasae-tsuri-komi-ashi to defeat Germany's Igor Wandtke in the men's under-73kg final.

The bronze medallists were Bulgaria's Mark Hristov and Brazil's Daniel Cargnin.
