Respect for others begins with self-respect. You have to know how to lose, that's true, but you also have to know how the manner in which to win. When one is young and the sky has just been reached, when the victory is acquired and everything is ready to celebrate, you must always respect the other and keep in mind that the victories are often the prelude to defeats because sport as life is an obstacle race. What we saw at the Paris Grand Slam is the absolute triumph of a code of honour, an education. There were sublime gestures, purely technical and then there was also the perfect illustration of what Judo is, values above all else. This after Paris and with the Düsseldorf Grand Slam on the way, here are the best ippons of the tournament of the French capital and scenes for eternity.


Your 22 years old and you’ve just won your first IJF gold medal in Paris. What do you do next? Instead of celebrating, Mukai 🇯🇵 rushed over to help the injured Gviniashvili 🇬🇪 off the mat which fans recognised with a standing ovation.

Olympic bronze medallist Sally CONWAY (GBR) recorded one of the finest wins of her career with a riveting performance as the tenacious Briton battled past world champion ARAI Chizuru (JPN) in the final. CONWAY, who won bronze in Paris in 2016, stopped ARAI from retaining her Paris title by escaping from an uchi-mata attempt and trapping the Japanese in a hold down for 20 seconds and ippon.
