Bestriding the judo world...
French colossus Teddy Riner (2.04m, 130kg) has dominated the sport of judo over the past decade, winning a record 8 world championship crowns and Olympic gold (+100kg) at London 2012.
One of the most popular sportspeople in France, the 27-year-old recently lent his voice to the animated Disney film, "Zootopia". But he remains, first and foremost, a born competitor. In April 2016, he won his 5th European championship title in Kazan.
After sweeping to gold at London 2012, Riner is now fully focused on defending his Olympic title. Success in Rio would guarantee him a place among the legends of the sport, alongside double Olympic champions Hitoshi Saito (1984-1988) and David Douillet (1996-2000).
