Reigning Olympic champion Shohei Ono won his third title in the men’s 73-kg division at the World Judo Championships on Tuesday, while fellow Tsukasa Yoshida settled for silver in the women’s 57-kg class.

Ono defeated Azerbaijan’s Rustam Orujov in the final with an uchimata inner-thigh sweep for ippon, less than two minutes into the bout at Nippon Budokan, the venue for judo at the 2020 Tokyo Olympics.
