[QUOTE=finarashi from Judoforum]The fight was probably the semifinal fight of Paris Super A-tournament 2004.
MARGOSHVILI David (Georgia) beat BENBOUDAOUD Larbi (France) by 1 0 1 1 - 0 0 0 0
What were the referees discussing?
- Benboudaoud hits the mat with his neck > should have been hansoku make?
- Benboudaoud never hits the mat with his back > should have been wazari?

Wow. It looked to me like the guy in blue (GIB) moved like a wrestler because that was one of the greatest back-bridges I have ever seen. GIB was initially rotating around the guy in white (GIW) while below GIW's hips. Do Judoka do this very often?
Also look in the second part of the clip that's in slow motion. Notice the angle and the altitude of GIB's hips once he begins his counter. Bizarro Root mentioned his athleticism, I think his timing was in-freaking-credible as well. GIB completely rotated GIW's torso from head up to head down while at a less than 45 degree angle from the ground. Outfuckingstanding Pyle.Shut the hell up and train.

"That one thirty seconds ago?"
"Yeah, that one"
"Hmm...well, I guess he threw him but now he's in a triangle"
"Call ippon anyway"

A normal human would have been Ipponed from the Osoto. Obviously blue is not a human.

There is a Mongolian Wrestling clip somewhere here on Bullshido ... this reversal is in that vid .. blew my mind then ... and it blows my mind seeing it done in a Gi ... I don't think it was off osoto gari in the mongolian wrestling clip ... but off a something similiar ...

Haha. Damn. That's one of the things in life you know right after you've done it, that you will never ever repeat it.
But WOW.. amazing reaction.More human than human is our motto.

Normally after watching a video of something interesting like that I would say "I will at least look into the possibility of trying this the next time I'm on the mats".... I'm not even gonna bother saying that here.
