Judo provided plenty of memorable action at the Rio Games.

For Team USA, two athletes reached the gold medal match in their division: Kayla Harrison and Travis Stevens. Harrison repeated as Olympic champion in the women’s 78kg weight class, sending her out on top after what is likely to be her final judo competition. Stevens ended up with silver in the men’s 81kg division, giving him his first Olympic medal in three appearances.

Meanwhile, the rest of the field provided exciting match-ending ippons, huge upsets, historic gold medals and, of course, just a little bit of controversy.
