而柔道宗主國日本在世大運柔道隊史上以52金18銀40銅獨占鰲頭，更是不容小覷。雖然日本這次並無奧運選手參賽，但16名選手不只是國內的常勝軍，在國際賽事中也有亮眼表現，其中飯田健太郎、新添左季以及能智亞衣美都曾在大滿貫賽事中奪金。（大滿貫為IJF（International Judo Federation，國際柔道總會）第三級賽事，僅次於世錦賽與大師賽。
Judo games becoming intense with menacing foreign competitors
The judo competition of the 2017 Taipei Summer Universiade is going to show up in Hsinchu County Stadium in August 20th, and it would surely bring out a stormy war between judokas from each countries.
There was just one step from winning the championship for the Chinese Taipei national team in the 2015 Summer Universiade, which was held in Gwangju, South Korea. As the host team, the Taiwanese would be much more eager to win the medal this time, for it will definitely stir up a fierce competition.
Besides the vigorous athletes from Western Asia and Europeans countries, Korean judokas are no slouch either.
Korean judoka An Baul(安保羅/安巴蔚), who has won a golden medal in the Gwangju Summer Universiade, and a silver medal in the man’s 66kg in the 2016 Olympics, would be a competitive athlete to the Chinese Taipei team.
Furthermore, Japan, where judo was created hundred years ago, has set a record of 52 gold, 18 silver and 40 bronze medal which occupies the first place in the historical record of judo.
Though Japan didn’t send any Olympic athletes to the Summer Universiade, the 16 judokas engaging in the event only do well in domestic judo games, but also preform outstandingly in international events. Especially Kentaro Iida(飯田健太郎), Niizoe Saki(新添左季) and 能智亞衣美 had all won golden medals in the International Judo Tournament (held by the International Judo Federation, second only to World Judo Championships and the World Judo Masters)
Face with these powerful opponents, it would be a tough game for the Chinese Taipei national team keep the golden medal in the nation.
