Or Sasson ensured the Israeli delegation ended the European Judo Championships in Kazan, Russia, on a sweet note after claiming a silver medal in the event for a second straight year on Saturday.

Sasson ended the over-100 kilogram competition in second place, only being stopped in the final by Olympic and world champion Teddy Riner of France.

The 25-year-old Israeli needed just 16 seconds to knock out Daniel Natea of Romania with an ippon in the semis, but struggled against Riner, a seven-time world champion who picked up his fifth European title on Saturday.
