Sarah Menezes of Brazil won the women's 48-kilogram Olympic judo gold medal on Saturday.
LONDON 2012 OLYMPICS
The second-ranked Menezes beat defending Olympic champion Alina Dumitru of Romania in a final that had both fighters on the defensive.

Menezes frequently had her hands up like a boxer as both struggled to get a dominant grip, without much success until the last minute of the match. After failing to throw Dumitru off balance with foot sweeps, Menezes finally succeeded in throwing her for the victory.

Menezes finished 19th at the Beijing Olympics.

Too bad Japan couldn't send Nomura.  I would've loved seeing his attempt.
