By the way, a lot of people thought that the black guy really was Ernesto Hoost (a Dutch K1 kickboxer). Well, the resemblance is indeed remarkable...
|5-8. Later on that day, we were
honoured by a visit of the Judo legend Anton Geesink,
the first non-Japanese to win a world championship in Judo, winner
of Olympic Gold in Tokyo (1964) and more than once Dutch, European and
World Champion Judo. He is the only still living holder of the 10th Dan
in Judo. Anton Geesink is a member of the board of the Dutch National
Olympic Committee, and a member of the International Olympic Committee
