Israeli judoka Uri Sasson looks to add a notch to his belt
After emerging from the shadow of his big brother, Sasson heads for the World Championships as Israel's next best hope in his weight class since Arik Ze'evi.
You wouldn’t want to meet Uri Sasson while walking in a dark alley. At 1.93 meters tall and weighing 100 kilos, his sheer body mass is intimidating body mass. He sports a rough beard and is liable to come across as threatening, but when he speaks, his words are calming.
