Apparently they have arent doing trials this olympics and have some new method. I definitely enjoyed watching the trials so its kind of a bummer.
Just wanted to let any judo enthusiasts know in case you (like me) were expecting to see any trials this year. I am still out of judo though on account of my shoulder surgery last year (this summer my doc said i can think about going back to judo).
But i guess ill just have to wait until the actual olympics, not too far off
