Judo: France great Riner's quest for 3rd gold ends early
AP , Friday 30 Jul 2021
The 10-time world champion was dreaming of hat-trick of Olympic gold
French heavyweight Teddy Riner's quest for a record-tying third consecutive gold medal in judo has ended with a strange loss to Russian athlete Tamerlan Bashaev in the quarterfinals.
The 6-foot-8 Riner lost 29 seconds into golden score when he slipped and fell onto his back as he attempted to throw Bashaev, who was given credit for a waza ari on a sumi-otoshi throw after video review.
The decision ended Riner's attempt to tie the Olympic record of three straight gold medals set by Japan's Tadahiro Nomura from 1996 to 2004.
Riner will still compete for bronze and his fourth consecutive Olympic medal in repechage in the evening session. The 10-time world champion also won bronze in Beijing.
