Judo and the Men's -100kg category was a mamoth match , a match of Titans . In the White Wolf Aaron fighting for Japan and in the Blue South Korea's Cho Guham .
Both men had come to claim Gold , For Japan it was a hope for another Gold in a sport they invented which would take their tally up and give them another medal in Judo .
For the South Korean it was a chance to prove their superioty in Martial arts after they had failed to grab a gold in the Taekwondo .
This was a a tense match where Wolf took his time to figure out his opponent , But Wolf was taking the risks with some good technique , While Cho attacked it was a battle of wits but Cho did make a couple of mistakes and penalties where awarded. But at the end of normal time of four minutes there was no winner .
In to Golden score the two fighters new they had to attack and get it right. As one mistake and all could be lost . Or at least that's how it would be.
As time ticked by and we where three or so minutes in to Golden score the two fighters where tiring , they had been going for over seven minutes , Cho had made a couple of mistakes in poor execution of technique where he just dropped to the floor , but amazingly the referee let it go and go again to the disbelief of the commentators . Four times were they thought the match had to be over via penalties the referee let them continue and to his credit the ref made the right choice in giving the South Korean the chance to carry on .
It would have been demoralising to lose on penalties in a Gold Medal match .
The two carried on and in the end the Wolf came through with a Ippon to secure Japan another Gold , the two fighters had been at it for 9 Minutes and 35 seconds .
Yes these where two titans fighting for honor and in the end the Wolf won .
A amazing match and a great end to the Men's -100kg Judo at Tokyo.
