Three Nations On Top In Judo

NICOSIA, 6 June 2009 - With Monaco triumphing in menís and Luxemburg in womenís category, the three-day action at Judo in the XIII Games for the Small States of Europe came to an end. In the total standings, Monaco, Luxemburg and Iceland were the nations that prevailed, after winning three gold medals each. In the total tally, Monaco came in first with 10 medals while Cyprus and Lichtenstein took home 7 medals each.

Besides the fact that Cyprus improved their record in the Judo events, in comparison to the Monaco 2007 games, the Cypriot Federationís people are not even close to be happy for the total of medals they won. In Monaco, Cyprus took home just one gold medal (with Charalambos Aresti) while in the XIII GSSE the host nation took two gold (both in men). The disappointment was even bigger in the womenís events, since Cyprus took second to last place with just two silver medals.

In the third and last game of the Judo events, Monaco lost the chance to celebrate the first place in the gold medals race, after losing both team event finals. In menís they lost 3-0 to Cyprus while in womenís team event they lost to Luxemburg with 2-1.
