Men's -90kg Predictions




There are many exciting players in this category with big names like Baker (JPN), Iliadis (GRE), Gwak (KOR, Denisov (RUS), Van T End (NED) and Liparteliani (GEO). The Georgian, who is the top favorite, will have a tough time, as he has Ustopiriyon (TJK) and Van T End in his weight class. But in the end, I think he will prevail and win the gold.

Based on the IJF draw here are the predicted winners of each pool:

Quarter-finals
A: Baker (JPN) vs Iddir (FRA) = Baker (JPN)
B: Iliadis (GRE) vs Nyman (SWE) = Iliadis (GRE)
C: Gwak (KOR) vs Denisov (RUS) = Gwak (KOR)
D: Liparteliani (GEO) vs Van T End (NED) = Liparteliani (GEO)

Semi-finals
1: Baker (JPN) vs Iliadis (GRE) = Baker (JPN)
2: Gwak (KOR) vs Liparteliani (GEO) = Liparteliani (GEO)

Final
Baker (JPN) vs Liparteliani (GEO) = Liparteliani (GEO)
