Tokyo Grand Slam: Gemma Gibbons wins historic bronze
Olympic silver medallist Gemma Gibbons became the first British woman to win a medal at the Tokyo Grand Slam, securing bronze in the season-ending event.
The 28-year-old beat Japan's Ruika Sato in the -78kg fight, winning thanks to a waza-ari in the final 48 seconds.
It was Gibbons' third bronze medal on the Asian Grand Prix tour.
"I have always dreamt of getting a Tokyo Grand Slam medal and I achieved that," she said. "It's great to have won a medal at all three tournaments."
