  • Description

    RUSSIANS DEFEATED JAPANESE JUDO CHAMPIONS 3 TO 1 IN A CONTEST HELD AT TOKYO METROPOLITAN GYMNASIUM ON FEBRUARY 26, AS PART OF A THREE ROUND TOURNAMENT OF JAPAN-SOVIET GOODWILL MATCHES.

    RUSSIANS, WHO CALL JUDO "SAMBO", DO NOT NORMALLY WEAR ANY SPECIAL TRAINING CLOTHES, BUT DID SO IN THE TOKYO MATCHES.

    IN THE FIRST, TAKAYUKI SHIGEOKA, 13-YEAR-OLD STUDENT, DEFEATED STEVANOF OREF, 23 YEAR OLD RUSSIAN WORKER AND THREE TIMES SOVIET CHAMPION.

    IN THE SECOND MATCH, TWENTY YEAR OLD MASAYOSHI MURAI OF MEIJI UNIVERSITY, A FORTH DEGREE JUDOIST, LOST TO 27 YEAR OLD RUSSIAN MOTOR DRIVER DORMISHAN.

    IN THE FINAL MATCH BETWEEN FOURTH DEGREE JUNEITSU SHIRASAKI, 21, OF NIPPON UNIVERSITY, AND SHURITU GEINRICH, A 32 YEAR OLD TEACHER WHO WAS 1962 NO.2 SAMBO CHAMP OF RUSSIA, THE RESULT WAS A DRAW AFTER 10 MINUTES.

    HOWEVER, THE RUSSIAN, WHO PLAYED CONSISTENTLY WELL AGAINST THE RATHER DULL SHOW OF SHIRASAKI, CLAIMED HE SHOULD HAVE BEEN DECLARED THE WINNER.

    IN FRIENDLY WRESTLING BOUTS, THE RUSSIANS WON SIX TO ONE.
