TBILISI, 11 Jun – Sputnik. The judokas of the Georgian national team won two bronze medals on the sixth day of the World Championships in Budapest (Hungary).

Varlam Liparteliani and Ilya Sulamanidze, competing in the weight category up to 100 kg, climbed to the third step of the podium. In the duel for the bronze, Liparteliani defeated Mikael Correl from the Netherlands, and Sulamanidze defeated Shady Elnahas from Canada.

For Liparteliani, who is the leader in the world ranking in his weight category, the current medal is already the sixth at the world championships. Unfortunately for the fans of the Georgian judoka, there is no gold medal among them – three silvers and three bronzes.

As for the 19-year-old Sulamanidze, for a young athlete this is the first podium at the adult world championship. Prior to that, Sulamanidze became the vice-champion of the youth world championship.

On the final day of the individual competition, the Georgian national team will be represented by two judokas: Gela Zaalishvili (+100 kg) and Sofia Somkhishvili (+78 kg).
