The expected athletes have qualified for the semi finals. No one doubted about Teddy Riner, his opponent was expected to be Or Sasson of Israel although he was in a tricky pool with Roy Meyer and Kim SungMin, but the Israelian survived his pool after he defeated Roy Meyer in the quarter final by wazari.

The other semi final is between Hisayoshi Harasawa who defeated Adam Okruashvili in the first round which was the launch for further progression against Ushangi Kokauri and Alex Garcia who beste Barna Bor. Hasarawa will meet the only unexpected semi finalist Abdullo Tangriev of Uzbekistan, the old fox is fighting his fourth Olympic Games. He started in 2000 in Sydney with 2 matches, two tough matches in 2004 and in 2008 he was in the final in Beijing against winner Ishii. This year he is back successfully with victories over Sua (SAM), Natea (ROU) and Iurii Krakovetskii (KGZ) in the quarterfinal. Krakovetskii surprised favourite Iakov Khammo of the Ukraine in his second match.

Riner defeated Or Sasson three times, and Harasawa won once from Tangriev, but again, this is the Olympics, the unexpected can happen. Teddy Riner never fought against Harasawa, so nothing to predict.

Repechage

Rafael Silva vs Roy Meyer 1-1

The best judo nations in the world

18 Aug 2020 17:00

Being born in a country doesn’t automatically mean that you’re good at its national sports. Not all British are good at soccer, not all Americans were born with a baseball bat in their hands, and not all Japanese are good at Judo. But when a sport has an especially large number of practitioners in a country, it is expected to have the best-performing athletes in the world. In the case of judo, this country is Japan that has given the world 39 Olympic Gold medalists over the years. Read more
