Judo takes to the mat for Asian Games test event

Guangzhou, China - The test events continue in Guangzhou ahead of the 16th Asian Games in November. On Thursday it was the turn of judo, with China's strength in depth evident at the Huagong Gymnasium of the South China University of Technology.

A burning sun greets visitors to the national youth judo championships on Thursday. The action is fierce inside Huagong Gymnasium, too.
The four-day National Youth Championships from June 24-27 have attracted 194 male judokas and 182 female players in 16 weight categories; together with the 137 technical support staff from the 47 teams, this makes for a total entry of 513 in the Chinese Judo Association-sanctioned event.
With a big crowd in attendance and two mats in operation, organisers were able to test all aspects of a judo championship in a truly competitive environment - ideal preparation for the Asian Games in November.
