On the second day of the Abu Dhabi Grand Slam, a vital Judo for Peace project was witnessed.

Twenty-one young Jewish and Muslim judoka from Israel between the ages of twelve and seventeen years, travelled to Abu Dhabi to exhibit friendship and inclusion. An initiative to continue the relationship between the United Arab Emirates and Israel and to display judo values. 

At -63kg Great Britain’s Lucy Renshall came through her preliminaries with beautiful judo throughout the day scoring in each of her contests on her way to the final.

In the final Renshall performed a massive hip throw against Portugal’s Barbara Timo to win her second gold medal at the Abu Dhabi Grand Slam! Earning her a fifth grand slam gold medal overall. An impressive display of judo.

H.E. Suhail Alareefi Abu Dhabi Sports Council Executive Director of the Events Sector awarded the medals.

I love it here, I got my first medal at junior worlds here, I got a bronze medal in this venue and then two grand slam medals before this one, so yeah there’s something good going on here.” Said a thrilled Lucy Renshall.

In the -73kg category Stylish Swiss judoka Nils Stump displayed his quality judo all day. Throwing all his opponents using the same technique, sasae-tsuri-komi-ashi.
