Israeli judoka Or Sasson won Israel's fifth medal, a bronze, on the last day of the Grand Slam judo competition in Abu Dhabi.
Before competing against and beating Benjamin Harmegnies of Belgium, Sasson won two matches in the 100 kilograms and over category to advance to the semifinals, where he lost to Poland's Maciej Sarnacki by an ippon.
Sasson also won Israel a bronze medal at the Rio Olympic Games in 2016
Some hours earlier, Peter Paltchik won a bronze medal. Earlier, the judoka advanced to the quarterfinals in the under 100 kilograms weight category. He lost to Giuliano Loporchio from Italy and won in the match against Hungary's Miklos Cirjenics to win Israel's fourth medal at the event.
Among Israeli women, Yarden Mayersohn also advanced to the quarterfinals, where she lost by two waza-aris to Britain's Natalie Powell.
On Thursday Israeli Tal Flicker won a gold medal at the tournament in the under 66 kg category. Since the hosts of the competition in the United Arab Emirates forbade any symbols of the state for the Israeli team, no flag was flown at the podium, nor was the Israeli anthem played.
However, Flicker appeared to be singing the national anthem to himself at the medal ceremony.
Gili Cohen became the second Israeli team member to win a medal – a bronze in the up to 52 kg category – after beating Joana Ramos of Portugal, the bronze medalist of the European Championship.
Judoka Tohar Butbul won the bronze in the under 73 kg category after he beat Italy's Fabio Basile.
