A Slovak surprise

AFP reports that a Slovakian woman has stunned the judo community.
Urska Zolnir of Slovakia turned the tide on Japan's judo domination Saturday at the Grand Slam tournament as she defeated former world champion Yoshie Ueno.
Zolnir, who eliminated Miki Tanaka of Japan in the semi-finals, went on to win the women's 63-kilogramme final scoring a yuko.
Japan, who monopolized four titles on the first day Friday, still collected four more titles on offer on Saturday.
