StatusOlympic
LocationBeijing Keji Daxue Tiyuguan, Beijing
Participants34 from 34 countries
FormatTwo single-elimination pools, with winner of each pool advanced to the final. All judoka losing to the finalists in each pool advanced to repêchage pools, with the winners of the repêchage pools earning bronze medals.

France’s Teddy Riner was the favorite, having won the 2007 World and European Championships, but he was upset in the pool semis by Uzbeki Abdullo Tangriyev. Tangriyev advanced to the final where he faced Japan’s Satoshi Ishii, the 2007 World University Games champion. The final match was close, but Ishii prevailed by yuko to win the gold medal. After the Olympics he upset the Japanese judo community by leaving the sport to sign a huge contract to compete in Mixed Martial Arts. Riner would come back in the repêchage to win a bronze, with the other bronze going to Cuba’s Oscar Braison, the 2008 World Cup Champion.
