Repercussions from the Douillet v.s. Shinoharas Final Judo Bout at the 2000 Olympics in Sydney

This article details Frenchman David Douillet’s Olympic bout with Shinohara. Major techniques are described through narration and clear photographs. For a finale, Shinohara threw Douillet down on his back, but Douillet was awarded the gold medal! Rules dictated that all decisions made by the referee and judges “shall be final and without appeal,” without recourse to video playback.
