About 150 athletes from 16 European countries ended up competing in both GI and NoGi brackets.

The event had varying categories. Each category that had a smaller number of athletes instead followed the Nordic System in which all players would play against each other and were then ranked accordingly. Female divisions were also present in both versions of the competitions and fairly well represented.  The organization was quite professional.

In the national team ranking Russia is first GI and NO-GI, Ukraine second GI and third NO-GI, Italy second GI and France third NO-GI. As can be noted in the sheets below, most brackets were dominated by Russian players but it’s interesting to note their domination is much more pronounced in Gi brackets where they lead in the first place with about a third more points than 2nd in place – Italy. The nogi sheet shows Ukraine tailing close by to Russia both leading France by a mile – 96 (and 88 points respecitvely) compared to 56 for France.
