-60kg Mens and -48kg Womens Judo

was also good. This level of competition can be hard to watch if you don’t know what is happening. It looks a lot like two people pushing and pulling each other around the mat with no rhyme or reason – not so. The gold medal mens match was spiffy, if short. I really thought the Japanese competitor, who ippon’ed his opponent in the semi in under 40-ish seconds, was going to win it but the Russian went from a beautiful attempt at an uchimata through a transition by his opponent into some type of drag throw (it’s been a really long time since I did any judo) for an ippon win. World class.
