Judo’s greatest tournament brings together all the top Judo nations as they battle for male and female team supremacy in the cauldron of the Bercy stadium in Paris.
The phenomenal Japanese squad, led by triple Olympic Champion, Tadahiro Nomura, start as clear favourites, but the Cuban women and the Georgian men are determined to improve on their second places four years ago. But no one would be stupid enough to write off the Russians, the Koreans, or the French in front of their fervently patriotic home crowd.
For the first time in widescreen, with multiple camera angles, countless slow motion replays, and fantastic sequences to music, this incredible two-hour production captures all the drama and excitement of this superb tournament.
Watch the stories of the World Teams from Basel, Switzerland, four years ago. Witness the build up in Paris, including a review of the draws.
Then comes the action! The best throws, the most fantastic groundwork, the tension of the teams, the influence of the crowd, the agony, and the ecstasy!
With the best highlights from all the mens and women’s team contests, including extended coverage of the medal contests, this will be watched again and again!
