The list of top medalists in the IJF World Tour is composed of about 75% women, demonstrating the consistency with which the top female athletes perform. Urantsetseg Munkhbat sits atop the list with 33 IJF World Tour medals to her credit. Of the most experienced judoka (those who have the most titles to their name since 2009), Amiran Papinashvili and Amartuvshin Dashdavaa are the only two male representatives in a field of power women.

In the list still exists a handful of women who have retired, with notables such as Van Emden (NED) and Harrison (USA). Also remarkable is the number of Mongolian athletes (with, in fact, 2.5 if one includes Galbadrakh, who now fights for Kazakhstan). Malzahn, Tcheumeo, Harrison and Powell were all fighting U78kg. Quite a dominant set of women.

When it comes to gold medals, Harrison was obviously very successful with 13 gold in the World Tour, but Matsumoto (14), Agbegnenou (14) and Majlinda (15) are even more established.

Now the question is if this is a matter of pure dominance or a matter of competition per weight category and gender. Discuss in our instagram @judoinsidecom
