    The Jeon Ki-Young Story Part 4: 1997 Paris World Championships

    8 Feb 2021 08:45

    The 1997 Paris World Championships was to be Jeon Ki-young’s last hurrah at the world level. Judo fans would have loved to see one final rematch with Yoshida but the Japanese champion had suffered an arm injury at the Atlanta Olympics, which put him out of training for nearly a year, and thus out of contention for the 1997 World’s. Interestingly, the person who broke Yoshida’s arm in Atlanta was Germany’s Marko Spittka, who would turn out to be Jeon’s final match opponent. Oon Yeoh writes about Jeon Ki-Young. Read more

    For the 1996 Atlanta Olympics, many judo fans were still hopeful of yet another showdown between Jeon Ki-Young and Hidehiko Yoshida, who was the defending Olympic champion but this was not to be as Yoshida got thrown for ippon in the first round by Adrian Croitoru of Romania.

Oon Yeoh writes about the best ever judoka from Korea: Jeon Ki-Young. Read more

    Many people wanted to see a Jeon Ki-Young vs Hidehiko Yoshida rematch after Jeon's world title in 1993 but back then, international competitions were a rarity. The IJF World Tour didn’t exist and there were no Grand Slams or Grand Prix where they could meet. Furthermore, the World Championships were also held only once every two years. Judo fans had to wait until the 1995 World Championships for that rematch to happen. But happen it did. Oon Yeoh writes about the best ever Korean judoka. Read more
