Teddy Riner's great day continues at the Accor Arena. The Frenchman won his third fight against the German Losseni Kone, 22nd in the world. An opponent who gave him more problems than the previous two. Indeed, the three-time Olympic champion had to deal with two penalties taken quite quickly, which could have made him doubt.
But with a very effective immobilization on the ground, Teddy Riner ended the fight by ippon after almost three minutes of fighting, his longest so far. In the semi-finals, the judoka with 11 world titles will face either the Uzbek Alisher Yusupov (3rd in the world) or the Georgian Saba Inaneishvili (35th in the world).
