Judo means 'gentle way' in Japanese, and was developed by Kano Jigoro at the end of the 19th century, who adapted it from the martial arts form of jujitsu, an ancient technique. It became part of the Olympic programme in Tokyo in 1964. The medal was won by Dutchman, Anto Geesink. Japan waited twenty years and the arrival of Yamashita to win back its crown.Today the sport is dominated by the French and the Japanese.
