Great Britain's Chelsie Giles won her third medal of this season's World Judo Tour with silver in Antalya, Turkey.

The former European champion, who won bronze at the 2020 Tokyo Olympics, lost to Japan's Uta Abe in the women's -52kg final of the Antalya Grand Slam.

Giles, 27, also won silver in Paris in February and bronze in Tashkent, Uzbekistan, at the start of March.

She has already qualified for this summer's Paris Olympic Games, which start on 26 July.

Emma Reid was the only other Briton to make it out of the pool stages in Turkey.

The 28-year-old reigning British half-heavyweight champion was beaten by China's Ma Zhenzhao in her bronze-medal bout in the -78kg division.
