Iran’s Kheirollahzadeh Advances to IBSA Judo Grand Prix Final - Sports news

Kheirollahzadeh defeated rivals from Georgia and England on his way to the final match and will face an Uzbekistani judoka in the final of the men’s +100kg.

The Baku 2019 IBSA Judo Grand Prix is being held at the Heydar Aliyev Sports Complex. It is part of a series of four Grand Prix taking place in 2019-2020.

As well as offering qualification for Tokyo 2020, the competition is also an important part of the build-up to regional Championships taking place this year.

It is the first to be held as part of a Memorandum of Understanding with the International Judo Federation (IJF) to help develop the sport.

More than 240 judokas from 36 countries are in Baku for the season-opening competition.
