Divisions with nine or more competitors will use repechage to decide on one third-placing.
For Karate, repechage involves the competitors who were beaten by a finalist playing off to decide the 3rd placing. This means that all medal winners, except possibly for third-place in a round-robin division, will have won at least one match.
