Georgia took the share of the spoils on the final day of the International Judo Federation (IJF) Grand Slam in Tbilisi as they won three of the five available gold medals.

The late surge also meant that the host country finished on top of the medals table with five gold, four silver, and five bronze medals.

Georgia's Gela Zaalishvili secured his fourth Grand Slam title following success at Baku 2019, Tel Aviv 2021, and Tbilisi 2021.

The 22-year-old won in the men's over-100-kilograms division with a devastating ippon against Uzbekistan's Alisher Yusupov at the Olympic Sports Palace.

Yusupov's compatriot Shokhruh Bakhtiyorov and Levani Matiashvili won the bronze medals as a result of winning the repechage rounds.

Onise Saneblidze got the better of Giorgi Beriashvili in an all-Georgian under-100kg men's final via a points decision as neither could deliver a clinical ippon, while Otabek Beriashvili of Uzbekistan and Germany's Daniel Herbst won bronze.

Georgia's final gold of the day came courtesy of 2017 European Champion Beka Gviniashvili who took three minutes and 25 seconds to deal an ippon to Hungary's Tokyo 2020 bronze medallist Krisztián Tóth in the deciding bout.

It was Frenchman Maxime-Gael Ngayap Hambou and Shoichiro Mukai of Japan who shared third place.

Julia Tolofua of France claimed her first Grand Slam gold after settling for bronze on five occasions as she beat 18-time African champion Nihel Cheikh Rouhou of Tunisia in the women's over-78kg.

Sophio Somkhishvili of Georgia and The Netherlands' Marit Kamps prevailed in the repechage to win bronze.

World champion and double Olympic bronze medallist Anna-Maria Wagner of Germany beat Brazil's Mayra Aguiar in the women's under-78kg contest for a fourth Grand Slam title while Britain's Natalie Powell and Dutchwoman Karen Stevenson got the bronze medals.

The next IJF Grand Slam is set to take place in Ulaanbaatar in Mongolia from June 24 to 26 with 165 athletes from 25 nations currently set to compete.
