British judoka Davis wins bronze

Britain's Nekoda Davis in action

Davis’s performances have earned Rio Olympic qualification points

Britain’s Nekoda Davis won bronze in the -57kg category on the opening day of the Dusseldorf Grand Prix.

Davis, 22, defeated Korea’s Paris Grand Slam winner Jan-Di Kim, scoring a yuko and waza-ari with two attacks for the win.

It was revenge for Davis after she had been beaten by her rival in last year’s Jeju Grand Prix final.

“Nekoda has had a brilliant day and has proved that she belongs at this level,” said head performance coach Kate Howey.
