YAMASHITA Yasukiro (1957) Japan / Judo
Since the inclusion of judo in the Olympic games in 1964, Japan had never managed to win the titles for each category, until Yamashita, already three times world champion between '79 and '83, set things right.This Japanese giant won Olympic gold in '84, finishing his career a year later on the wave of a series of 200 consecutive victories.From then on, in his country he enjoyed a god-like status and assumed the role of chief coach of the Japanese judo team.
