After receiving a bye in the first round of the under-60kg Judo competition, Tommy Arshansky beat his Dutch opponent Jeroen Mooren by judge decision on Saturday after neither competitor managed to score a point during regular and extra time.

The 20-year-old Arshansky, who was sent to London as one of the delegation’s three up-and-coming athletes, also beat Mooren, a European bronze medalist, in their previous meeting last year.
