Israeli judoka Sagi Muki won the gold medal at the Baku Grand Slam on Saturday, while Gefen Primo got a bronze medal on Friday.

Muki, along with Tohar Butbul, reached the final matches on Saturday. Muki came out with the gold medal. He has, as such, risen to first place in the world rankings, hinting at his participation in the 2020 Olympics in Tokyo.
