Israeli judo fighter Tal Flicker won the gold medal in the Abu Dhabi Grand Slam on Thursday in the 66-kg.-weight category, but the Israeli flag wasn't raised in the stadium. Instead, the flag of the International Judo Federation was raised.

A few minutes before, Gili Cohen won the bronze medal in a fight with Joanna Ramos of Portugal.
