Canadian judoka Valois-Fortier, Margelidon earn Grand Slam silver, bronze
Teammate Shady El Nahas will try to collect Canada's 4th medal at Hungarian event
Quebec City judoka Antoine Valois-Fortier earned his second Grand Slam medal of 2020 on Saturday with a silver-medal performance in Budapest, Hungary.
The Canadian was defeated by Vedat Albayrak of Turkey in the men's under-81-kilogram final, reaching the Grand Slam podium for a sixth time in his career.
Valois-Fortier, 30, won bronze earlier this year at the Paris Grand Slam in February.
A back injury sidelined the two-time Olympian and 2012 bronze medallist for nine months from May 2018 to February 2019.
Valois-Fortier won the third world medal of his career, bronze, in the under-81 kg bracket in Tokyo in August 2019.
Canadian teammate Arthur Margelidon of Montreal won bronze in the under-73 kg division against Russian Musa Mogushkov on Saturday for the 27-year-old's first third-place finish at a Grand Slam event.
Canada sits third at the event with three medals following Friday's gold by Jessica Klimkait of Whitby, Ont., in the women's under-57 kg category.
Competition continues Sunday with Toronto's Shady El Nahas in action.
