For the other blue finalist, Yassin Hermi (70 kg), the insurmountable obstacle was called Mikhail Usov: the Russian managed to turn in his favor the fate of a balanced match, finished 4-1 in his favor.

The female sector instead saw two silvers arrive: Lucia Elen Ayari (50 kg) was defeated by the Montenegrin Bojana Gojkovic 4-1, while different fate fell to Miriam Tommasone, who was counted and declared defeated by the referee after the Russian Luiza Orets had dealt a powerful direct in her face.
