    I think it was already discussed in this thread?

    I have never seen the previous thread, nor do I understand Japanese.

    My first reaction was Wazari! Then on slo-mo it appears to me that there should be no score due to Saito losing control (hand control) and when Yamashita actually hits the ground, Saito is not touching him.

    I am not so sure that the hantei went the correct way though. Either way, Saito was robbed.

    I wonder if the match would have had a different outcome had Wazari been scored? Would this have driven Yamashita on to score ippon or would his reign definately have come to an end. One never knows, I guess.
