Natalie Powell – Bronze Medal

Natalie Powell claims her fourth medal of 2018 and 10th Grand Prix Bronze

It was a closely fought contest between the two British athletes as Yeats-Brown came out the blocks the quickest and soon put Natalie on the defensive. Ill-discipline from her soon allowed Natalie  back into the fight however as she picked up two shidos throughout the contest. Natalie demonstrated her experience at this weight and soon registered a waza-ari to give her the lead. This forced Yeats-Brown to take a risk and this led to an opening in which Natalie took to throw her opponent for ippon to add another bronze medal to her collection.
