Our local girl Marti Malloy will be bringing home 2012 London Bronze after nailing a kouchi gari ippon victory over Italy's Giulia Quintavall in the -57 kilo division. That makes her only the second woman to bring home a medal in the history of Olympic Judo (first being Rhonda Rousey).
This is huge and unfortunately most of America will sleep right through it. Just wanted to send a heartfelt congrats to a local girl who busted her ass to be one of the best in the world! Congrats Marti, much respect!
