2008 Beijing Olympic Judo Retrospective

Content! Here's a day-by-day recap of this year's Olympic judo tournament that originally appeared at the vaunted mixed martial arts blog. It has been converted to its present and enormous(ly readable?) PDF format by Iain Liddle. There are some passages of awkwardness due to the transition from hyperlinked html intertextuality to static PDFness, but much more is gained than lost, I think. I hope that you enjoy this more than Nicholas Tritton did -- dude was not pleased that I called his match some of the least appealing judo you're likely to see at this level. Let me again say: Nicholas Tritton is awesome; matches with six shidos are definitely not awesome. Six shidos! That's not something you see everyday.
