As a sidebar, Judo is constantly monkeying with the rules, supposed at the request of the IOC, and they have made dramatic changes again. But one of the rules they have change this round was to change from a three minute sudden death OT with a judges decision if there was no score at the end of three minutes to an unlimited sudden death OT where it does not end until the first penalty or penalty is awarded.
