Sally Conway added to GB's haul with an excellent day of judo on the mat in the -70kg competition, defeating a number of higher ranked opponents .

 

World No.7 Assmaa Nianga was defeated in the Bronze medal contest, while there were notable wins over Australia’s Aoife Coughlan and Russia’s Alena Propkopenko.

 

Finally, Coventry judoka Chelsie Giles won a final third place with an accomplished victory over experienced Andreea Chitu from Romania.
