Hello, dear friend of Judo!

At the heavyweight Judo Final in Sydney in 2000, Japanese challenger Shinohara faced judo icon David Douillet.

David attacks with his well-known Uchi Mata. At the same moment, Shinohara raises his leg. David makes a  turn in the air, because he has no resistance for his attack.

David falls on his back: YET NO SCORE for the Japanese!

David wins the fight later and becomes Olympic champion for the second time.

This video shows the situation from several perspectives.

What is your opinion? Score or no score for the Japanese?

Best,

Alexander!
