Marti Malloy Fighting For Bronze At Worlds

Marti Malloy will fight for a bronze medal in Astana. She just defeated Hedvig Karakas (HUN) by waza ari in the repechage. Marti took the initial lead one minute into the match when Karakas dropped and was awarded a shido. With 1:30 remaining in the match she threw Karakas with sumi gaeshi for a waza ari which was good enough when time expired. She faces Autumne Pavia (FRA) who lost to Kaori Matsumoto (JPN) by a lone shido.

I watched her last 2 fights. She was much more aggresive and scoring minded. The taller players gives Marti some problems.. Pavia(FRA) made her look defensive in golden Score. Impressed with Marti's overall performance.
