KimTOKYO: London Olympic gold medallist Kim Jae-Bum of South Korea and Linda Bolder of the Netherlands stopped Japanese domination at the Grand Slam international judo tournament in Tokyo on Saturday.

 

The 27-year-old Korean, also the world champion in the past two years, pulled off a yuko and went on to beat Ivan Vorobev of Russia in the men's 81-kilogramme final.

On Friday, Japanese judokas dominated the event winning the men's 60kg, 66kg, women's 48kg, 52kg and 57kg titles through Naohisa Takato, Jumpei Morishita, two-time world champion Haruna Asami, Yuki Hashimoto and Anzu Yamamoto.

 

The other two classes on Saturday were all-Japanese affairs with Shohei Ono beating world champion Riki Nakaya to win the men's 73kg and Megumi Tsugane beating Kana Abe to win the women's 63kg title.
