I watched her brutal match with the Russian in the semi, she ground that poor Russian to a pulp! 10 mins in to over time, a massive golf ball sized swelling over her eye. Taimanova basically lost when she passed out from the beating! No quick ippon here! Wow. Arai earned that medal!

She's from the neighboring town of Yorii, a quiet semi-mountainous town in northern Saitama with quick and easy access to natural outdoor playground clean rivers! Congratulations!!! Saitama is very proud of you! Your strength and resilience were indefatigable!
