Then in the final, he took on Georgian Judo legend Varlam Liparteliani and sent the crowd into raptures by once again executing a brilliant counter. Phenomenal scenes in the Steppe Arena, with the next generation of judoka present and desperate for a chance to meet the man of the day and take a selfie with him. He was awarded his medal by P.Tsagaan, Chairman of the Board of the Steppe Arena.
