The Grand Slam of Baku brings together 449 judokas from 57 countries. The judokas from Team Daedo María Bernabéu, Niko Sherazadishvili y Rustam Orujov claimed bronze at the Baku Grand Slam 2019.
Bronze of Niko Sherazadishvili in Baku 2019
The Spaniard, Niko Shera, fell in the semifinals in one of the best matches that can be seen today. The last two world champions of -90 kg. The judoka based in Brunete made a great fight. He dominated with his grip, and his rival had received two penalties. However, in the extension to the gold technique, Majdov made a great movement, similar to a ‘kata guruma’, and won the fight for Japan. In the end, the Serbian would take the final gold. A great competition which he completed despite not being able to reach the final. Sherazadishvili continues as world number 1 after this result.
Bronce of Niko Sherazadishvili,
María Bernabéu y Rustam Orujov
