Sally Conway and Amy Livesey both won silver at the Cancun Grand Prix judo event in Mexico as four Britons finished with medals on day two.

Conway saw off Venezuelan world number one Elvismar Rodriguez en route to the -70kg final where she was beaten by Spain's Maria Bernabeu.

Livesey lost out to Brazil's Ketleyn Quadros in her gold-medal contest.

GB's Lubjana Piovesana (-63kg) and Gemma Howell (-70kg) both won bronze medals.

"It feels great to be back competing at this level," said Conway, who was taking part in her second competition back since winning bronze at the 2016 Olympics in Rio.

"I am happy with how I fought and looking forward to a few days in the sun. Then it's back to training for the Worlds in September."

Commonwealth judo champion Ashley McKenzie had won bronze for Great Britain on day one of the Grand Slam event.

The Cancun Grand Prix is part of the International Judo Federation's World Tour and runs until Sunday.
