Yaniv Tuchman's report from the judo competition at the Olympics (our envoy to Tokyo)

The sequence of disappointments on the judo mat in Nippon Bodokan continues - after the misses of Shira Rishoni and Baruch Shmailov in the battles for bronze, the losses of Tohar Botbol and Timna Nelson Levy in Sagi Muki's house of consolation and stumbling already in the quarterfinals, it was Pelchik's turn to come close and remain .

In addition, Gili Cohen, Gili Sharir, Lee Kochman and Inbar Lanir found themselves expelled at an early stage.

Today (Friday) the last two representatives of the delegation - Uri Sasson weighing over 100 kg and Raz Hershko weighing over 78 kg, will compete in their fights, and on Saturday the judo team will compete in the team competition, which will be held for the first time at the Olympic Games. Israel will open in the first round against Italy.

Sasson's path to the medal seems almost impossible.

Bronze medalist Mario de Janeiro will meet the legendary Teddy Reiner, who opened his fights with a quick iphone against Stefan Hagi from Austria.

In the highest weight there are not many participants so Sasson will start his way already in the quarterfinals.

Even if he passes Riner, he is expected to meet Tamerlan there in the Russian Shave, who is ranked 1st in the competition.

Convenient first round, then it gets tough.

As for Hershko, her first rival will be Thani Alkatni.

In contrast to past boycotts, this time the Saudi delegation made it clear that judoka would most likely face a battle with the Israeli.

Hershko, ranked 22nd in the world, should easily overtake the anonymous and inexperienced rival, who is ranked 140th in the world.

The problem is that in the quarterfinals, the Japanese Akira Sona is already waiting.

The 2019 world champion arrived with great hopes of rising to the top of the podium and she will be a clear favorite against the Israeli.
