Judo: Riner wins without shaking in Brasilia

Rio de Janeiro (AFP)

France's Teddy Riner won Tuesday's Brasilia tournament by beating ippon after just twenty seconds, the Brazilian David Moura, for his second competition since returning to tatami mats in July.

In the semi-finals, the two-time Olympic champion defeated reigning world champion Lukas Krpalek, who led him to the golden score in July in Montreal, after a 20-month absence.

With this title in the Brazilian capital, Riner, 30, has earned valuable points in the race to qualify for the Tokyo Olympics 2020, where he will try a tripled unprecedented in heavyweight. He will then participate in the tournaments in Abu Dhabi (October 26) and Perth, Australia (November 4).
