Alice Schlesinger finished in fifth place in her category at the World Junior Judo Championships in the Dominican Republic on Saturday after losing to American Ronda Rousey in the bronze medal bout. The 18-year-old Israeli ended with four wins and two losses in the under-63kg category, failing to repeat her bronze medal performance at the under-20 championships two years ago. Schlesinger defeated Canadian and Russian opposition in the first two rounds of the competition, but lost to a Japanese judoka in the quarterfinals. The Israeli got a chance to fight for a medal after winning twice in the consolation group, but came up just short of a medal. "It is a great pity we lost the fight for the medal," national team coach Pavel Mosin said on Saturday. "Nevertheless, the competition was very important and was a great experience for the young girls."
