2014 Commonwealth Judo Champion Natalie Powell has doubled the GB medal count by taking a bronze medal at the Dusseldorf Grand Slam.

This follows Nekoda Smythe-Davis who previously claimed a gold medal at the same event.

Ruika Sato from Japan stopped Powell at the semi final stage, but Natalie fought back to claim third place.

She certainly made it a nail biter, taking on and beating Dutch fighter Karen Stevenson in the bronze medal match by a single score.
