Tokyo 2020 - How to watch our Aussie Judokas

Rio Olympians Katharina Haecker and Nathan Katz will make their second Olympic appearances, while Aoife Coughlan will make her Olympic debut.


With Judo founded in Japan, the three fighters will return to the spiritual birthplace of the sport, and will compete in Nippon Budokan – the same venue Judo made its Olympic debut in 1964. The Judo competition in Tokyo will run from 24-31 July.


The mixed team event will make its debut at the Tokyo 2020 Games, where teams of three male judoka (-73kg, -90kg and +90kg) and three female judoka (-57kg, -70kg and +70kg) will join forces to become the inaugural Olympic Judo team champions.
