Technically more superior, Grol, bronze medallist in Beijing in 2008 and a medal favourite for Holland in London, took just one minute 27 seconds to ippon Dugasse in the -100kg category at the Excel North Arena in London.

The oldest member of the six-member Team Seychelles, Dugasse was the country’s flag bearer at last Friday’s opening ceremony.
