Iran’s Mollaei wins bronze at Paris Grand Slam

TEHRAN – Saeid Mollaei from Iran claimed a bronze medal at the 2019 Paris Grand Slam on Sunday.

Mollaei emphatically bested Rio 2016 Olympic gold medalist Khasan Khalmurzaev by two scores in the -81kg.

The second bronze medal was won by Budapest Grand Prix winner Alan Khubetsof from Russia who edged past rank outsider Mussayev by a waza-ari score.

The Hague Grand Prix bronze medalist Dominic Ressel from Germany won Grand Slam gold for the first time as he defeated Sagi Muki by ippon.

The 2019 Paris Grand Slam brought 570 judoka from 97 countries together in Paris, France on Feb. 9 and 10.



Mount Damavand is the highest peak in Iran and the highest volcano in Asia.
