Format: Losing quarter-finalists compete against losing semi-finalist for bronze.
|Bronze:|| GÃ©vrise Emane
The two favorites were 2011 World Champion [Gevrise Ãmane] of France and two-time World Champion [Yoshie Ueno] of Japan. However, both of them went out in the quarter-finals and they would both settle for bronze medals. Ãmane lost to Mongolian [Tsedevsurenqiin MÃ¶nkhzaya], while Ueno lost to Korean [Jeong Da-Wun], but neither of them made the finals. MÃ¶nkhzaya lost in the semis to Slovenian [UrÅ¡ka Å½olnir], who had won a bronze medal at the 2004 Olympics, while Jeong lost to the unknown Chinese [Xu Lili]. The final match was an easy victory as Å½olnir moved ahead by waza-ari at 1:27 and held that lead, with Xu scoring only a yuko in the last second of the match. Xu had been 17th at the 2011 Worlds in her only major international exposure.
