Nowadays? How about always?

The sponsors who set up the shows and have a stake in them always turn out with the trophies. Curious huh.

Yep, can't escape politics in tournaments, although I don't think it was so different 50 years ago. When Kimura fought Helio Gracie, the mats were extremely soft so as to neutralise the judoka's biggest strength- throws. Since Helio was obviously trying to prove the superiority of his art, it would be foolish to think the state of the mats was mere coincidence.

the idea is to let your performance not inch by those with politics on their side, but to blow them away and transcend to the point where they cant pull that with out an all out revolt by the competitors and spectators (imo)
