This Thursday in Jerusalem, Romane Dicko carried the colors of France high by winning the highest step of the podium at the Judo Masters in the +78kg category. Her rival for the gold medal also contributed. Beaten by the title holder of the Masters, the Frenchwoman Coralie Hayme leaves for her part of the Israeli capital with a beautiful silver medal around her neck. This nice double gave the tricolor contingent two of its four awards on Thursday, the last day of competition. They helped bring the blue-white-red total to ten medals, the second best record of this Masters behind Japan. The country of the rising sun counts nine podiums but its three titles gleaned propels it to the top of the classification by nations.
Promising before the Paris Grand Slam
In -78kg for women still, Audrey Tcheuméo lost in the final against the Italian Alice Bellandi. A second place therefore synonymous with silver for the double Olympic medalist, like Alexis Mathieu in -90kg. In the final, the Parisian suffered the law of the Japanese Sanshiro Murao. These good results will make French judo enjoy an excellent end-of-year celebration, the next major meeting of which will take place at home. On February 4 and 5, 2023, the AccorHotels Arena will host the Paris Grand Slam 2023 in which Teddy Riner has planned to participate while Clarisse Agbegnenou is still not sure of being there.
