Which judoka did not dream of ippon, the ones he scored one day in competition? This moment of eternity when the opponent seems to be as light as a feather and flies in the air to land on his back, while the referee raises his arm above his head announcing the magic word: IPPON! But likewise, which judoka did not nightmare the next day, remembering that he too flew like a bird, without being able to control anything, and that he had to make a forced landing synonymous with defeat. It's the law of sport, the law of judo. For your eyes only, the International Judo Federation has compiled the twenty best ippons of the season 2017 and we invite you to discover them accompanied by the comments of Neil Adams, the voice of the judo world.
