they both sustained very serious injuries which neither have been able to fully recover from.
they were both so incredibly good as juniors, much like mathew baker is now.
i wonder if it was a mistake to have them competing at such a high level at such a young age.
I agree with you, they are wasting the potential of those two. Especially Haga (wonderful Uchi-Mata) but he is till only 22. I do wonder how it's possible for a judo players to sustain such repetitions of injuries during his 1st and 2nd year of competitions. This reminds me of Ezio Gamba's statement concerning the training methods of the Japanese Judo team. He basically called the too brutal. If the Russian's think that you're training too hard you have to question your training regime.
Hopefully for the Japanese Aaron-Philipp Wolf will justify the hype surrounding him in Japan.
23 For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God; 24 Being justified freely by his grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus:25 Whom God hath set forth to be a propitiation through faith in his blood, to declare his righteousness for the remission of sins that are past, through the forbearance of God;26 To declare, I say, at this time his righteousness: that he might be just, and the justifier of him which believeth in Jesus.
8 For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God:
