Report of the Pan American Judo Championships 2000 in Orlando Day 1

10 Nov 2000 22:10

The 2000 Pan American Judo Championships were held just outside of Orlando, Florida in the town of Kissimme, home to the world famous Walt Disney World and Universal Studios theme parks. Jointly hosted by USA Judo and Florida 2012 (the bid committee for 2012 Olympic Summer Games), there were only 128 competitors representing 18 countries this year, making the event somewhat smaller than usual. This was due in part to the fact that the championships came some two months after the Sydney Olympics. Noticeably absent was Pan American powerhouse Cuba, who did not send a team due to visa problems. Brazil also failed to send a men's team - in fact, only one male and three female Brazilians took part. This left much of the field wide open and paved the way for a number of players to take medals that might not have otherwise. Read more
