    Olympic champion Jaebum Kim (KOR) retires

    Jae Bum Kim (Korea), -81kg, who has accomplished everything a judo athlete could at the world level, decided
    to finally retire from competitive judo.

    I recall reading his interview nearly four years ago after he won the Olympic gold in London about how damaged
    his body is and he will retired, but he came back and continued for four more years. Regrettably looking less
    sharp and explosive in the subsequent tournaments. Seems like a wise choice to stop and preserve his body
    and health.
