Iran, Kazakhstan, and Uzbekistan got the spotlight on Day 1 of the 2023 IBSA Judo Asian Championships that are taking place at the Jekpe Jek Hall in Astana, Kazakhstan. The host country, its southern neighbour, and the Persian nation conquered two gold medals each in the day dedicated to the light weight categories.

Seyed Abadi (J1 -60kg) and Vahid Jeddi (J2 -73kg), from Iran, defended their titles as world champions in Baku and moved a little further on the Road to Paris.

Playing at home, Yergali Shamei (J1 -73kg), also a world champion, and Dayana Fedossova (J2 -57kg), bronze medal in Baku, delighted the fans by being the golden heroes of the day.

For Uzbekistan, Kemran Nurillaev (J2 -60kg), and Lobar Khurramova (J2 -48kg) stepped into the highest place. For Lobar, it was a double win, not only for the first place but also because she won the final against Akmaral Nauatbek (KAZ), nothing less than the current world champion, and playing at home!
