Georgia collected two golds on the last day of individual competition at the International Judo Federation (IJF) World Junior Judo Championships in the Italian city of Olbia to move top of the medal table.

Senior bronze medallist Ilia Sulamanidze triumphed for Georgia in the men's under-100 kilogram division, executing a perfect okuri-ashi-barai in the last minute to open the scoring and pave his way to victory in the final against Uzbekistan's Sukhrob Rajabo.

"Before the final, my coach was talking a lot and I said, 'don’t worry, I’m ready'," Sulamanidze said afterwards.

"I started slowly and after two minutes I started to push.

"Then I threw just as I expected."

Matvey Kanikovsiy took bronze for Russia against Slovakia's Viktor Adam, and so too did Utkirberk Toroboyev of Uzbekistan as he ensured a second place for his country on the podium by beating Germany's Kilian Kappelmeier.

Saba Inaneishvili took Georgia's fourth gold of the competition in the men's over-100kg event, moving it ahead of Russia on two.
