Bercy Stadium, Paris. The French head the medal table after the first two days of competition, in front of a 14,000 home crowd. This fantastic production covers the second half of the competition, as the Japanese fight to restore their supremacy. Can the Nakamura brothers bring them gold medals in the -71 Kgs and -65 Kgs? Can their brilliant lightweights Tadahiro Nomura, -60 Kgs, and Ryoko Tamura, -48 Kgs be stopped by anyone? Can Marie-Claire Restoux (FRA), repeat her winning performances at the ‘95 Worlds and the ‘96 Olympics or will the young North Korean Sun Hui Kye do to Restoux what she did to Tamura at the Games? How will Georgi Vazagashvili (GEO), fare at yet another new weight? And who will take the Open categories?
Highlights of over 160 fights, multiple camera coverage, more Ippons than ever before and slow motion analysis of all the excitement and controversy, make this Fighting Films’ most comprehensive coverage of a Judo event to date.
