Hifumi Abe gives Japan second gold medal in Tokyo 2020

Tokyo, Jul 25 (Prensa Latina) A Waza-Ari was enough for Hifumi Abe to defeat Georgian Vazha Margvelashvili on Sunday to win the gold medal in the 66 kgs judo division of the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games.

The Japanese applied the Waza-Ari technique after 1.50 minutes; Margvelashvili intensified the fight looking for his rival, but Abe managed to avoid the Georgian’s repeated assaults.

A few minutes earlier Abe’s sister Uta beat France’s Amandine Buchard by Ippon in the women’s 52 kgs category and thus Japan enjoyed the two golden crowns for a sui generis edition of Olympic judo.
