The 20-year-old beat veteran Hungarian three-time European champion Miklos Ungvari in the final with a inner-leg sweep (ouchi-gari).

World champion Masashi Ebinuma made up for the disappointment of losing in the semi-finals to Shavdatuashvili by beating Poland's Pawel Zagrodnik for bronze with a stunning hip-wheel technique (koshi-guruma).

Cho Jun-Ho of South Korea, who lost a controversial quarter-final to Ebinuma, claimed the other bronze on offer, beating Spain's Sugoi Uriarte.
