Tanimoto - Double Olympic Champion

Animoto: Double Olympic Champion

There are not that many double Olympic gold medalists in judo. Among the women, there are Ryoko Tani (JPN), Xian Dongmei (CHN), Masae Ueno (JPN) and Ayumi Tanimoto (JPN). Tanimoto, who was a student of the great Olympic and triple World Champion Toshihiko Koga, won her first title in 2004 and followed that up with a victory in 2008, this time coached by Olympic champion Yoshiyuki Matsuoka. She won both her titles with ippon.
