Summary

This class went completely against form as all the favorites lost early. Top seeded Musa Mogushkov of Russia lost in the first round to Azerbaijan’s Tərlan Kərimov. In the round of 16 Colin Oates (GBR) defeated Mongolian favorite Khashbaataryn Tsagaanbaatar, while highly regarded Masashi Ebinuma of Japan lost in the semi-finals to Georgian Lasha Shavdatuashvili. The final matched Shavdatuashvili against Hungary’s Miklós Ungvári, a three-time European Champion, including 2011. Shavdatuashvili was the youngest competitor in the class but overcame the experience of the 31-year-old Hungarian to win the gold medal. The bronze medals went to Ebinuma and Korea’s Jo Jun-Ho.
