Teddy Riner has his ticket for the Olympic Games in Tokyo!

The selection for the Olympic Games of Tokyo (July 23-August 8) of Teddy Riner, in search of a third historical title in heavyweight, was made official Tuesday by the French Judo Federation (FFJudo).

The Guadeloupean, two-time Olympic champion in the over 100 kg category and ten-time world champion (eight times in the over 100 kg category, twice in all categories) returned to victory in mid-January at the Doha Masters for his return to international competition almost a year after his defeat in Paris – his first defeat in nearly nine and a half years.

His current 16th place in the Olympic rankings does not quite qualify him for a top seed in Tokyo and the potentially more favorable draw that goes with it. Teddy Riner, 32 years old recently, is not yet committed to any competition between now and the Olympic deadline.
