Israeli Judoka Wins Silver at World Championship


Defending gold-medalist judoka Yarden Gerbi of Israel won a silver medal at the World Judo Championship's women's under 63 kilogram division on Thursday, which was held in Chelyabinsk, Russia.

Gerbi faced off against Clarisse Agbegnenou of France in the final for the second time running. Last year Gerbi defeated Agbegnenou, but this year roles were reversed with the French judoka delivering an ippon decisive throw shortly into the match.
