Filipina judo bet Kiyomi Watanabe suffered a shocking 10-0 defeat in the women’s 63-kg judo Round of 32 against Spain’s Cristina Perez Cabana Tuesday at Nippon Budokan.
Cabana immediately scored a Waza-Ari in the opening seconds, able to pull an arm bar on the 24-year-old Filipina-Japanese judoka.
Moments after, Cabana’s move was upgraded to a Sumi-otoshi throw to triumph via Ippon, ending Watanabe’s Olympic hopes in a matter of seconds.
The match lasted 38 seconds.
Watanabe is a first-time Olympian who won silver in the 2018 Asian Games. She is also a four-time SEA Games gold medalist.
