Edinburgh judoka Sally Conway suffered an early exit at the World Championships in Astana, Kazakhstan, losing to Japan’s Chizuru Arai in golden score.

Arai won with a yuko score in the extra period to end Conway’s hopes of a first world medal in the under-70kg competition.

The Japanese player was always going to provide a formidable threat, having won the Tokyo Grand Slam and Dusseldorf Grand Prix.

It is the second successive year that Conway has 
failed to come through her first match at a World Championship.
