Japan completed a clean sweep of women's titles at the International Judo Federation (IJF) Tyumen Grand Slam today as hosts Russia also claimed two titles.

The Japanese, still the world's largest judo powerhouse, laid down a marker that they remain the team to beat in what was the final major competition before Rio 2016.

Chizuru Arai continued where her team left off on day one with victory in the under 70 kilograms competition.

She beat Valentina Maltseva of Russia in the final as bronze medals were shared by Venezuela's Elvismar Rodriguez and Bosnia and Herzegovina's Aleksandra Samardzic.

Rika Takayama then beat Slovenia's Klara Apotekar to win in the under 78kg category.

Russia ensured two more podium positions as Aleksandra Babintceva and Anastasiya Dmitrieva shared bronze.

Nami Inamori made it seven from seven in female divisions with an over 78kg final victory over Nihel Cheikh Rouhou of Tunisia.

Larisa Ceric claimed the second Bosnian medal of the day by sharing bronze with Russia's Nataly Sokolova.
