The International Judo Federation (IJF) reviewed the results of the World Championship finals in the weight category over 100 kg with the participation of a Russian Inala Tasoeva and decided to award the gold medal to the two participants in the fight.
Tasoev won silver in the over 100kg weight category in mid-May, losing in the final to three-time French Olympic champion Teddy Riner. Afterwards, the IJF acknowledged the judges’ error in the final duel, stating that “points for Tasoev’s counterattack could have been awarded”.
– During the final fight, there was a situation in which neither the referee on the mat nor the IJF Refereeing Commission gave a single score. After a thorough analysis by experts, according to the rules of arbitration in force, a score could be attributed to the counter-attack of Inal Tasoev.
Therefore, the IJF declares the two athletes the winners of the competition and awards Tasoev the gold medal and the corresponding ranking points. official site IJF.
