Hong Kong wants to stage the judo event to address Olympic qualification concerns

The Hong Kong Judo Association (HKJA) is hoping to hold an event that will count towards Olympic qualification after raising concerns over the impact of the COVID-19 crisis on its athletes’ chances of securing a place at Tokyo 2020. Olympic Judo fans can book Olympic Judo Tickets from our ticketing marketplace exclusively at reduced prices.

HKJA chairman Wong Po-kee told the South China Morning Post the organization is planning to stage a competition in February or March using a “safety bubble”, pending Government approval.

The bubble, part of the International Judo Federation’s (IJF) COVID-19 protocol, would grant international athletes traveling for the event an exemption against two-week quarantine measures in place in the country.

“The biggest problem remains is that if we invite overseas competitors to Hong Kong, they will face minimum two-week quarantine under the current health practice,” said Wong. 

“If we cannot lift that quarantine requirement, I am sure we cannot have an international tournament.

“If the Government can accept this safety feature and lift the quarantine requirement for overseas arrivals, we may be able to work out a fruitful plan.”

Travel restrictions imposed across the world in response to the pandemic have led to increasing concern in numerous sports over how athletes can qualify for the postponed Tokyo 2020 Olympics.

Wong said it would be difficult for Hong Kong judoka to compete in the tournaments which count towards the IJF rankings, used to determine Olympic quota places, as most are set to take place in Europe.

Leung Po-sum, ninth in the women’s under-57 kilogram rankings, is Hong Kong’s main hope of sealing a Tokyo 2020 judo berth, and Wong said the HKJA was hoping she would be able to take part in competitions in Europe to boost her chances of qualification.

“We are planning to send Leung to Europe next year but it’s very difficult to get out of Hong Kong these days under the quarantine requirements, both for Hong Kong and overseas countries,” said Wong.

“If she cannot compete anymore, she may be overtaken by other judokas from the region. 

“Having a qualifying event in Hong Kong will help safeguard her position.”

Under the IJF’s revised process for Tokyo 2020, athletes have until June 28 next year to earn qualification points.

The IJF was forced to push back its deadline in the wake of the decision to postpone Tokyo 2020 to 2021.

The coronavirus pandemic curtailed dozens of judo events and led to the early abandonment of the 2020 World Tour season.

Promoter Dean Lonergan believes that Huni will shine at the Olympics, calling it a “massive opportunity” for the boxer. For More Click Here.

“I see that as an acceleration of his fame levels because all Australian sports media will be assembled at those Games and by that stage, the Justis Huni train will be up and running and every available sports journalist will go to every single fight that he has in those Games because he’s a red hot gold medal prospect,” Lonergan said, as reported by ABC.

“I see it as nothing but positive.”

It is planned for Huni to have four more bouts on the professional circuit before the Games, including fights with former world title challenger Alex Leapai in May and former Australian heavyweight champion Lucas Browne in early July, according to Lonergan, who has lofty ambitions for his fighter.

“Which now I am pleased to tell you are the protocol that has been shared not only inside the judo community and for all judo events but also to help the entire Olympic Movement and other sports federations and governments around the world to see how we were able to do it.

Former United States judoka Jimmy Pedro, who won the world under-73kg title in 1999 and took Olympic bronze in 2004 and 1996, described how operations at the judo center he runs in Wakefield in Massachusetts had managed to continue through a combination of virtual lessons and safety measures introduced to actual training.

“Having the values of judo and the discipline of our judoka helped a lot with ensuring that our bubbles were safe and protected.”

“We had 240 judo students at our Academy before COVID hit,” Pedro recalled.

“We run the school as a business, so we had to keep the students coming back to us.”

He explained that bespoke learning had taken place on Zoom calls, while measures had been taken once lockdown had eased sufficiently for youngsters to come into the center for training.

British and Irish Lions Tour – Stick says it will be like revenge

Springbok assistant coach Mzwandile Stick says facing the British & Irish Lions was one of the best experiences of his career. He cannot wait for next year’s tour to begin.  Rugby lovers can book their Springboks Vs British And Irish Lions Tickets on discounted prices easily

The last time the Lions toured South Africa in 2009. Stick who at the time was captaining the Blitzboks to a World Sevens Series title.

King’s side was a largely invitational team. A bulk of players from overseas clubs, the Vodacom Bulls, and a few from the Eastern Cape. Stick’s Blitzbok teammate, Mpho Mbiyozo, would score the Kings’ only try as the Lions went on to claim a hard-fought 20-8 victory.

Stick came on to the field in the second half but says the memories of that match are still fresh in his mind.It was 11 years ago, but I remember everything from that game,’ Stick said. ‘Many players don’t get the opportunity [of playing against the Lions], but for me, even after retiring, it always brought a smile to my face.

‘We were facing the best players from Europe. Ronan O’Gara kicked 10 points, Ugo Monye scored their only try, and there were many other big names, too. To share the field with all those players created memories that will last a lifetime, and I’m grateful for that opportunity.

‘Around then, I was all the while playing for the Blitzboks, however, I got a call from Mr. Solomons and he requested that I play that game. Myself and Mpho Mbiyozo, who was with me at the Springbok Sevens group, just couldn’t disapprove of this chance.


‘There was one thing that made it very special to me – to play in front of our supporters in Port Elizabeth. It’s the place that made me who I am, and it’s very close to my heart.

‘We had any semblance of De Wet Barry, an extraordinary Springbok, Solly Tyibilika and Francois Hougaard – a ton of incredible players, and for me, as a youth, it was uncommon to hobnob with these folks. At that point, taking a gander at the setting.

It would have been the principal sports coordinate at the Nelson Mandela Bay Stadium, that was worked for the 2010 Soccer World Cup. We were truly eager to be a piece of that history.’

Springbok assistant coach:

Now working under Jacques Nienaber as the Springboks’ assistant coach, Stick says the Lions will have vengeance on their minds after the Springboks’ victories over Wales and England during last year’s World Cup win.

‘The World Cup final against England was very tough and we had to be at our very best – I think facing the Lions will be three times as tough. Unlike at a World Cup, where you do have easier

weeks, there will be no opportunities to take things easy when preparing for the Lions – every training session, every gym session will have to count.

‘We are the current RWC champions – we beat England in the final and Wales in the semi-final, so they are going to come hard for us. It will be like revenge.

We’re certainly not expecting anything light. The northern-hemisphere sides are very strong at the moment – all of those teams are very tough, and we’ll make sure that we’re ready for that challenge.

Imagine what I would have done if I had two legs!” he told the post-match news conference.

“Maybe today would be the day you would see me sprint for 40 metres. But it’s the club’s birthday today, exactly 50 years, so we will not forget this birthday for sure,” he said.

Tuchel was under pressure to deliver in Europe this season, something PSG, utterly dominant at home, have struggled to achieve despite massive investment in talent over recent years. Their last Champions League semi-final was back in 1995.

“It was absolutely deserved,” said Tuchel.

The curtailment of the French season due to COVID-19 left PSG with a lot of time to think and little action to prepare for the trip to Portugal but Tuchel said their spirit was right.

It was very difficult to prepare the team. There was no rhythm because there were no games, but I could feel in the last days that the determination, enthusiasm and effort of the group, the quality of the training and the mix between love and hard work, was exceptional.

“For me, it was a deserved win, but if you score so late it was also luck – but I’m the first one to admit you need luck,” he said.

The attitude was epitomised by Brazilian forward Neymar who, despite missing a great chance early in the game, continued to probe and question the Atalanta defence.

“I never thought we’d be back home tomorrow. At every moment, we just went for one thing – progress to the last four,” said the former Barcelona striker.

Nobody will endlessly get it out of my head that I need to go to the final. We’ll have to precise what we can and play another countless game. We’re very happy and experiencing great moments.

“We’re a formidable squad, a family, with the attitude that it’s impossible to knock us out,” he added.
