Did anybody else go to this? The quality of the randori was amazing and I don't think I have ever seen Judo players pushed as hard as the olympic team were!

What was amazing about the randori? Was it open and flowing with everyone attacking with abandon without fear of being thrown, or was it just like dojo shiai?

The randori consisted of 3 groups. 1st group was under 70kilos, 2nd was over 70kilos and third group was Olympic team. The randori went Group 1, Olympic team, group 2, Olympic team, Group 1, Olympic team, Group 2, Olympic team and so on. Therefore you could be on 2 fights in a row if you were lucky enough to get a fight against a member of the Olympic squad. Ben Fletcher looked particularly on form as did Peter Cousins (who was there but is not in the Olympic team, I think he is hoping to be drafted in)All players looked to be doing good flowing Judo besides a couple of players who had a few clashes (e.g. Matt Clempner & Tasty and Pat Dawson and Shinkin)

At one point I didnt know which to watch, there was Euan and Reed fighting, then Cousins and Austin, then Purssey and Burns, then Oates and Burns. The quality of player was amazing! They are all training very very hard!

Daniel Lascau proved to be his worth as he was very motivational and after speaking to him for some time I could tell he is very focused on producing a medal from these games! He said at the start of the camp 'one of you will medal in London, I need this, you need this, we all need this!'

I guess the quality of women there was good if by good you mean all the top ranked women. I didn't really watch much of it to be honest.

Dan says "one of you will win a medal ...."

I think we left a few words out ...


"on the first day. Then one of you will win a medal on the next day ..."

Were you there training or just watching? How come you didn't watch much of the women training?
You have enemies? ......good, that means at some stage you stood up for something you believe in....

Training. I was on the mat fighting most of the time and as a male player you dont tend to pay much attention to what the women players are doing as you cant really fight them.
