In this he was defeated by the Belgian Sami Chouchi in the class up to 81 kg with Ippon. For the 25-year-old from Upper Austria, however, it is a great success. He got 500 World Cup points, wrote in the Olympic qualification and received the equivalent of a good 2,500 euros. Michaela Polleres (-70 kg), Magdalena Krssakova (-63) and Lukas Reiter (-73) lost at the beginning.
Borchashvili had prevailed in the pool final against the Russian Alan Kubeuow by Ippon (self-fall technique) in the Golden Score, in the semifinals the Canadian World Cup third Antoine Valois-Fortier had to give up after a good minute because of a rib injury. In the final, Borchashvili landed a supposed Ippon rating after just twelve seconds, but after studying video only waza-ari was given.
“The decision to Waza-ari was absolutely correct,” said ÖJV sports director Markus Moser. “Chouchi just fell on his side. It’s a shame that Shamil lost in the end. But he can be proud of this result. His first win on the World Tour is only a matter of time.” The decision was made after 62 seconds of fighting time by a stranglehold by Chouchi, as a result of which Borchashvili was briefly passed out.
Already on Friday Sabrina Filzmoser (-57 kg) remained unplaced after winning and losing to the eventual final winner. On Sunday, Bernadette Graf (-78) will make her comeback, the Tyrolean’s last competition so far before the corona outbreak. Also named are Aaron Fara (-100) as well as Daniel Allerstorfer and Stephan Hegyi (each +100).
