Just go to IJF.org and click the link on the right hand side of the screen. Not sure if it's just my computer, but stream seems to be running WAY better than the Paris streams for the World Championships.

Zantaraia vs. Nour coming up soon. I don't even know who Nour is......

Waiting for Sobirov and Hiraoka to have their matches too.

60kg is probably going to be the best weight class to watch of the tournament; not interested in Riner, but will try to see Iliadis on another path of destruction.

Wow, Paischer's opponent (Takato) is a Japanese high school student. Slight age gap.

Ooops, just checked the brackets. Sobirov doesn't seem to be competing in this tournament. Wonder what happened to him.

Won-jin Kim vs. Mudranov.....WJK almost beat Sobirov at Paris. Something is up with Mudranov's leg. Kim is only 19 years old. Just about got armbarred off his failed seoi nage, but manages to advance.

Choi Min-ho is fighting at 66kg now. As one of the older judoka (31), I hope he wins.

This Mongolian, Davaadorj, is really impressive. Definitely fits the Mongol mold of judoka. Just took out Davtyan.

If Takato and Hiraoka win, it's going to be an all-Japanese semi-finals.

Who is this 19 yr old Japanese TAKAJO Tomofumi who beat the top Korean, top mongolian and top Russian? He was ranked around 143 in the world and beat 3 top ten players including Choi, Khashbataar and Mogushkov.

Got to see a few early matches this morning. I think it was Mogushkov who had a MONSTER seoi-nage on Ebinuma of Japan. And Gneto of France had a great match against Hashimoto. She was relentless with her attacks(left sided hip throws), nearly catching Hashimoto with a score in the first 2 seconds of the match. I lost track of how many identical attacks/counters she before closing the match out.

I got the time zone differences wrong (again)US time is 8:30 for prelims not 10:30. Sorry I missed Eldred's fight, I see Malloy is up in 2 fights.
