In total, 550 fighters from 85 countries are expected on the Parisian tatamis this weekend, Saturday and Sunday, at the Accor Arena.

Among the main headliners are the cream of the judo world with many Olympic and world champions.

But the public will probably only have eyes for Teddy Riner who has been rare on the circuit lately due to a succession of injuries and who will be the attraction on Sunday.

Due to the large number of entries, the start of the competition, initially scheduled for 9 a.m., was finally brought forward to 8 a.m. by the organizers for the two days of competition.
