Israel’s Golan Pollack fights for late bronze at Worlds

Golan Pollack joined an exclusive list of local judo greats on Tuesday after becoming just the sixth Israeli to claim a medal at the World Championships.

Pollack won a surprise bronze medal in the under-66 kilogram competition in Astana, Kazakhstan in the most dramatic of fashions.

The 23-year-old looked to be heading to a defeat against Tumurkhuleg Davaadorj of Mongolia in the battle for the bronze, only to overturn the deficit with a crucial move that earned him a yuko with nine seconds remaining.
