    2008 Olympic Judo and Wrestling Trials

    http://www.usjudo.org/2008OlympicTrialsAnnouncement.asp

    This is a great announcment from USA Judo. The new executive admininstrator is doing a great job of getting Judo into the community. I believe we are in for some good times ahead with the sport.

    I didn't see anywhere in the article listing when the tryouts would be. Do you know the dates? I have a Vegas trip coming up late this year or early next year.

    Also how does someone qualify for the tryouts? I am really not up on my U.S. Judo knowledge.

    If I can plan my trip around this event I will definitely go see it.

    Correct the top 5 competitors at the time are invited to the trials.

    You earn points by attending and placing in the top 3 at tournaments throughout the year in the US and abroad. Tournaments are given a rating according to difficulty level and points are adjusted accordingly. You lose points for an event after 1 year and a day. Judo players are ranked according to competition level. A+ being the olympic level all the way down to E level. In general its a system setup to give the advantage to the person who can compete more, win more and earn the most points. Its a pretty fair system and in order to be number 5 in the US and get to be the team rep at your wieght you have to beat the number 2 guy , then the winner of number 3 and 4 and then beat the number 1 guy twice, if I remember correctly. So you better hope you have your A++ game that day and number 1 is sick as a dog.

    There was some contraversy about the selection process over the years so this method is being used now.

    Thanks for the breakdown on how points are acquired. I hope that this event is going on when I go to Vegas.

    Most of these will be on the team but that may have changed this year.
