Video - Bischof claims Judo crown

Germany's Ole Bischof won judo gold in the men's 81kg event with victory over South Korea's Kim Jae Bum in the final.

The 28-year-old took advantage as Kim, exhausted from a semi-final that went into overtime, had no strength to fight back in the closing stages.

Bischof went ahead with just over a minute remaining and kept on the attack until time ran out.

Britain's Euan Burton missed out on a chance to fight for bronze after losing his repechage final.

606: DEBATE

Victory over Brazil's Tiago Camilo would have put the 29-year-old Scot into a play-off for one of the two bronze medals available.

However, Camilo, the Brazilian 2007 world champion, held on to his lead after going ahead in the second minute of the contest with a throw for a wasa-ari.

"This guy is world champion and a great judo player," said Burton. "It was a close one but not the most exciting judo I've ever played that's for sure. It's the Olympic Games and every match is a test.

Video - Burton bows out

"I had a slow start - first matches are always nervy - it was scrappy all day but it doesn't have to look good to win.

"Mostly, to get an Olympic medal you have to come up with the big throws - that's not what I did today - but it wasn't for a lack of trying."

Camilo went on to win bronze after beating Guillhaume Elmont of the Netherlands.

Ukraine's Roman Gontyuk added Beijing bronze to the silver he won in Athens four years ago as he beat Mongolia's Damdinsuren Nyamkhuu.
