The bronze medal matches and finals start in nearly 30 minutes at USA Judo’s Grand Prix Miami with U.S. Olympic Bronze Medalist Marti Malloy going against Hungary’s Hedvig Karakas for the gold medal in the 57 kg. division.
Malloy (USA Judo Training Site, San Jose State Judo/NYAC, San Jose, CA) has gone 3-0 for the day. Her last match against France’s Helene Receveaux was exhausting just to watch. Malloy dominated, shooting a variety of throws but putting no points on the board. She finally won in overtime, advancing her to the finals against Karakas.
Tune in at 5:00 p.m. EST, Miami time, for the bronze and final rounds, including Marti’s bid for the top spot on the podium.
