Isaev celebrates golden win - London 2012 - Judo

Russia's Mansur Isaev clinched gold after defeating Japan's Riki Nakaya in the final of the men's -73kg Judo competition.

Mongolian Nyam-Ochir Sainjargal won the bronze after making a comeback through the repechage, defeating Dex Elmont from the Netherlands.

Elmont was lacking in aggression, giving an opening to Sainjargal to take charge of the bout.

The second bronze went to Frenchman Ugo Legrand, who defeated current world champion Wang Ki-Chun in an unexpected victory.
