Russia once more dominated the men's contests on the final day of the Budapest Grand Slam, winning all three gold medals.

Inal Tasoev, now 22, secured his third International Judo Federation (IJF) title in the men's heavyweight division, beating compatriot Tamerlan Bashaev in the final.

All of Tasoev's victories came via ippon, and the final lasted less than a minute.

In the under-100-kilogram category, Niyaz Ilyasov was victorious.

A silver medallist at last year's World Championships, all of his victories also came via ippon, including in the final against fellow Russian Arman Adamian.

Mikhail Igolnikov secured the other Russian gold medal today, needing just 21 seconds to see off Altanbagana Gantulga of Mongolia in the men's under-90kg final.

Gantulga was attempting to secure a first Grand Slam success, but instead Igolnikov earned his first since 2018.

Nonetheless, it was an impressive showing from Gantulga, including the prize scalp of 2019 World Championships bronze medallist Nemanja Majdov.

Nine of the 14 men's finalists at the first IJF event since March were Russian, and the nation finished top of the medals table with 10 in all.

France were second and Audrey Tcheuméo won their second gold today, triumphing in the women's under-78kg class.

She beat compatriot Fanny Posvite by a sole waza-ari.

Tcheuméo, a silver medallist at Rio 2016 and a third-place finisher before that at London 2012, had not won a Grand Slam outside of Paris since 2010.

Turkey's two-time world bronze medallist Kayra Sayit took the women's heavyweight crown, defeating two-time African Games champion Nihel Chikrouhou of Tunisia. 

Turkey also finished the event with two gold medals.
