The welterweight event was won by the clear favorite and top seed, Russian Maksim Khramtsov, the 2017 World Champion. He ran through the tournament without any problems and clearly dominated the final against Jordan’s Saleh El-Sharabaty, winning 20-9. It was a first Olympic gold and silver respectively for each athlete. Khramtsov commented afterwards: “I knew I just had to kick as hard as I could. I saw in his eyes that silver was enough for him.” The bronze medals went to repêchage winners Toni Kanaet from Croatia and Seif Eissa from Egypt.
