Szofi Özbas can fight for the bronze medal in the World Chess Championship

Sofi Uzbas, who weighs 63 kilograms, can fight for the bronze medal on Wednesday at the World Olympic Qualifying Championships in Doha.

The 21-year-old Hungarian judoka didn’t seem to have bumped her right elbow against Laura Vasliu after losing the quarter-finals with a painful strain on her forearm. It was a good sign for the Kosovo rival that their only match so far was won by a BHSE competitor in the first world tournament staged after the coronavirus pandemic, the Budapest Grand Slam in 2020.

Their second fight brought a fruitless three-minute fight, but then the third Hungarian of the European Championships knocked out Vasliu with an inside hook throw and Ippon won.

Austria’s Lupjana Piovisana awaits Uzpas in the bronze medal match. The afternoon program starts at 17:00 Hungarian time at the Ali Bin Hamad Al-Attiyah (ABHA) Arena, and the medal matches will be broadcast live via M4 Sport.

Attila Ongvari, who weighed 81 kg, lost in the consolation round and finished seventh. And the three-time bronze medalist of the European Championships, Hungarian, after losing the quarterfinals, went to the bronze, where Canadian Francois Gauthier-Drapeau was waiting for him. The only previous match was won by a Pan American bronze medalist last year at the 2021 Grand Slam tournament in Baku.

After four minutes of stoppage time from the Qatari game, the Győr player received two yellow cards, and the Canadian player received one yellow card, so that he could not start until the golden point. The 34-year-old Ungvari was a bit more nimble on this one too, but after three and a half minutes his opponent ducked and threw, earning a point. With this, Ongvari finished the World Cup in seventh place.
