Indian Judoka Tulika Maan beat Sydnee Andrews of New Zealand in the Women’s +78kg semifinal to confirm another medal for the country in Judo. Maan beat Andrews by Ippon to book herself a spot in the final. She will now take on Scotland’s Sarah Adlington in the gold medal match.

Earlier, the Indian judoka beat Tracy Durhone of Mauritius in the Women’s +78kg Quarterfinal to progress to the next round. Tulika won by Ippon within three minutes.

Coming back to the match between Maan and Andrews, the Indian initially violated a rule in the 36th second of the match and got a ‘Shido’. Her opponent Andrews gained a Waza-ari in the 57th second of the match. But the New Zealander was not prepared for what was coming as Mann gained the Ippon at the one-minute 53rd-second mark and sealed her spot in the final.

Earlier today, Mann entered the semifinal of the women’s +78 kg category after defeating Tracy Durhone of Mauritius in the quarterfinals at the ongoing Commonwealth Games 2022 in Birmingham on Wednesday. Mann gained a Waza-ari within just 42 seconds into the match.

On the other hand, Durhone violated the rules twice, once at the 1:30 minute mark and later at the 2:30 minute mark, due to which she was penalised twice. The Indian gained another Waza-ari at the 2:53 mark and finished the match after getting an Ippon before it could touch the 3-minute mark.
