    51 1964 Olympics Anton Geesink

    1964: Anton Geesink of the Netherlands holds down Akio Kaminaga of Japan shortly before winning the open judo category at the 1964 Olympic Games in Tokyo, Japan. Judo was included in the Olympic Games for the first time in Tokyo in 1964 and the host country, which invented the sport, swept up all the gold medals until the open category. Dutchman Geensik, who had been a dominant figure in the sport, triumphed and brought disappointment to the hosts. Geesink was a huge man, but had a nimbleness which belied his frame and skill with ankle taps which were crucial. He subsequently devoted himself to teaching and became an IOC member in 1987.
