In the final contest of +100kg there was one situation where neither the referee on the mat nor the IJF Refereeing Commission gave any score
At the 2023 World Judo Championships in Doha there was a controversial no call made during the final of the +100kg category between Teddy Riner (FRA) and Inal Tasoev (AIN) during the golden score round. Teddy Riner wearing a white judo gi came in for an attack which was blocked and countered by Inal Tasoev wearing a blue judo gi. Inal immediately rose to his feet and celebrated as the new world champion of +100kg. Riner could be seen laying on his back waving his finger in disapproval of Tasoev’s celebration. No call was made by the mat referee nor the IJF Refereeing Commission.
