Any predictions?   

 


Not necessarily a prediction of who I think will win but here are some of the women I will be cheering for. Some do have a great shot of medaling while others have a very tough road ahead of them. 48kg Aziza Chakir (MOR) 52kg Soumiya Iraoui (MOR) 57kg Nekoda Davis (GBR) 57kg Nora Gjakova (KOS) 63kg Edwige Gwend (ITA) 70kg Marie-Eve Gahie (FRA) 70kg Elvismar Rodriguez (VEN) 78kg Madeleine Malonga (FRA)

I don't have any predictions but some of the best matches are the semifinals to watch before the medal rounds.  The winner goes to the Finals and is guaranteed a silver.  The loser has to fight the winner of the losers bracket(repechage) for Bronze and if they lose is out of the Bronze Medal and finishes 5th.   Watch the Semi Finals, some of these are the best matches of the day.  They know what is at stake.

The non-biased commentary by Loretta Cusack and Neil Adams is second to none. Neither are afraid to give a personal opinion.

I went to the Nippon Budokan yesterday.
Uta Abe is something else, pure dominance.

Mens-66 was great when it reached the quarters.

I had both Abe's getting gold, but?Maruyama was having none of it.

Thanks Aaron.  The judo action is best I have seen.  Nothing but growth and popularity for the sport.

Was Ono injured for the last few years? Is he is the best guy since Riner?

French women with 3 golds now.

Japan needs another gold on the last day, and maybe the team comp too.

The French women are fantastic and after their performance at this year's world championships they are arguably the best women's team in the world. Dominant performances on Japan's home soil.

The French women are on fire.

 

Marlonga(-78k), Gahie(-70k) and Agbegnenou(-63k) all Gold Medals. 

 

The Japanese have a harder time at the larger weight categories.  Height/strength becomes more of a factor when the judo is relatively equal.

I believe every athlete representing Kosovo got a top 7 finish and the qualification points that come with it. 3 bronzes, a 5th and 7th I think. Impressive

Japan got 15 medals next was France 5 medals.  And yes Kosovo got 3 Bronze medals and a 7th place. 23 countries had at least 1 medal.  None for the US.

The larger weight Japanese fighter are almost always shorter and it is quite known that they are not as physically strong as their western counterparts but this year alone, Japan still got:

Silver at 90kg
Bronze at 100kg (Wolf won gold in 2017)
Silver at +100kg

Silver at 78kg womens
Gold at 78+ womens

I guess the days of Yamashita, Ogawa, Shinohara and Japan usually taking the HW golds are gone though....esp with Riner...without Riner….Shichinohe and others could have won gold many years.
