Judo Joy For Monaco And Luxembourg

NICOSIA, 5 June 2009 - The Judo event at the XIII Games of the Small States of Europe came to a close on Friday, with Monaco and Luxembourg emerging as the victors in the Men's and Women's events.

The final medals standings saw Monaco, Luxembourg and Iceland take the top medals with Monaco, who took a total of ten medals, streaming to gold success in the menís event and Luxembourg prevailing in the womenís event.

Despite going one better in gold medals compared to Monaco 2007, officials of the Cyprus Amateur Judo/Taekwondo Federation were far from impressed from the Cypriot athletes came fourth overall in the medals standings. Both gold medals were taken in the menís event with the womenís event showing an even bigger shortfall of just two silver medals.

In the third and final day of the judo games, Monaco missed the chance to celebrate winning the most gold medals after suffering two defeats in the team finals.

They lost to Cyprus 3-0 whilst the womenís team were defeated 2-1 by Luxembourg who topped the standings in their own group.
