 Hi, I am just wondering who people think I should keep an eye on and watch out for. I was never big into Judo, but I see it's importance in mma, bjj and even street fights. I also follow Australian Ivo Dos Santos, who recently realised his dream of qualifying for the Olympics in London this year.

Who are some exciting players/matches to watch?

Who is looking good to win/medal in the Olympics?

Who are the best Judo players in Australia?




Thanks in advance!

The up-and-comer I pay most attention to is Kim Won-jin. Young and already taking out big names.

Hirotaka Kato has made headlines recently, being the first under-100 player to win the Nationals in Japan in 40 years. But apparently he didn't even qualify for the Olympics.

Riner, Iliadis, Sobirov are obvious favorites for the men's I guess.

I think the only "lock" is Teddy Riner France 100k+, -73 kg Ki-Chun Wang S.Korea, -81k Jae Bum Kim Korea,Kayla Harrison -78K USA women's, Lucie Decosse-France -70K women's is a beast and "manhandles" most of her opponents. I think the men 100k is completely up in the air.
