Judoka Shah Hussain Shah wins first medal for Pakistan at CWG 2022

Japan-based athlete Judoka Shah Hussain Shah has won the first medal for the country during the ongoing Commonwealth Games in Birmingham.

He won a bronze medal in the -90kg category by defeating South Africa’s Thomas-Laszlo Breytenbach. Despite losing in the quarter-final of the -90kg category against Australia’s Harrison Cassar, Shah got the opportunity to compete for the medal.

The medal rules in Judo are slightly different from other competitions. In judo, the four competitors who lose in the quarterfinal rounds are paired against each other in two separate bronze medal brackets.

The Japan-based athlete has twice won a gold medal during the South Asian Games in 2016 and 2019, respectively. He also bagged a silver during the 2014 Commonwealth Games.
