Dominating when he entered the competition against the Turkish Mevlut Oztas, the Couronnais once again crossed paths with a Ukrainian judoka in the quarter-finals. Beaten by Samoilov in Bielsko Biala a month ago, he lost this time to Nikita Yudanov. A fight that was still within reach of Harvent, quickly surprised by the Ukrainian. During the 4 minutes of combat, the student of Guillaume Avril tried to make his delay without ever succeeding.
A complicated fight
Switched in the repechage table, Kéziah Harvent quickly dispatched his first two opponents: the Slovak Timotej Stefanik and the German Erik Dukow. For bronze, the opposition is more intense because he finds the Latvian Maksims Bizans, 2nd in Poland. A complicated fight for the Couronnais who faced with an opponent slightly superior to him had to settle for a fifth place. A disappointing result for the ambitious Couronnais who, despite having made a date with other international meetings. The Sarajevo Worlds (August 24-27) can thus be in the back of his mind.
