The gold and silver medals were determined by a single-elimination tournament, with the winner of the final taking gold and the loser receiving silver. Judo events awarded two bronze medals. Quarterfinal losers competed in a repechage match for the right to face a semifinal loser for a bronze medal (that is, the judokas defeated in quarterfinals A and B competed against each other, with the winner of that match facing the semifinal loser from the other half of the bracket).[1]

The medals were presented by Henri, Grand Duke of Luxembourg, IOC member, and the gifts were presented by Mr. Naser Al Tamimi, General Treasurer of the International Judo Federation.
