One guy that's been impressive has been Masato Uchishiba in the Mens 66kg weight class. The Gold medal match was ended impressively. A lot of very nice transitions from dropping down into a sweep then seamlessly into an armlock for a quick verbal submission from France's Benjamin Darbelet.
The start of the sweep
Armlock fully secured, Darbelet tapping...
Watching more judo and I'm pretty excited to see greco and freestyle wrestling. Especially Karam Ibrahim Garber from Egypt. That guy is a complete monster and probably the most exciting wrestler to watch in the past 4-5 years in greco. Gaber completely dominated everybody in his weight class en-route to a Gold at the 2004 Olympics. It was truly a sight to see. As much fun as watching the great Alexander Karelin wrestle back in the day.
