On day 2 of the IJF World Championships, Chelsie Giles was in action for British Judo.
Giles defeated the African Championship bronze medallist, Charne Griesel (RSA), in the second round, following an opening round bye. A dominant opening round match by Giles saw her throw her opponent for waza-ari followed by a 10 second hold down to see her progress to Round 3 to face Fabienne Kocher (SUI).
In Round 3, Giles went a waza-ari score up early in the contest and looked dominant. With the contest level at 1 score each, a mistake by Giles saw her thrown for a second waza-ari.
The next British involvement at the World Championships will be Wednesday 9th when Amy Livesey and Lucy Renshall are in action in the -63kg competition.
Livesey will face Alexia Castilhos (BRA) in the opening round, a fighter who is ranked just 2 placed behind her in the world rankings.
Meanwhile, Renshall has an opening round bye and will face Isabel Puche (ESP) in Round 2.
Preliminary Rounds start at 09:00am (BST) with Final Block scheduled to commence at 16:00 (BST) on each competition day.
