Iranian judo International Javad Mahjoub has climbed the world ranking of +100kg category for seven places after winning the silver medal at the Antalya Grand Prix in Turkey at the weekend.
Mahjoub now is on the 17th place of the world ranking for his weight category; the medal raised the medal count for the Iranian to four silver and gold medals in 2018, according to website.
Silver at the Tunis Grand Prix in January, gold from the Prague European Open in March and Tbilisi Grand Prix silver as well as Antalya Grand Prix silver are Javad Mahjoub’s medals in the current year so far.
Junior world champion Inal Tasoev from Russia did not read the script as he erased the headlines journalists had already penned and won his first IJF World Judo Tour crown in golden score to give a sublime finish to the competition when he threw with an o-goshi for ippon.
Both men deserve plaudits for their attacking efforts as they almost went throw-for-throw which made for an exhilarating gold medal contest
