GENETIC FREAKS #2 – Teddy Riner

Teddy Riner is a 33-year old professional judoka from France (more precisely from french caribbean). He holds the greatest track record of the whole Judo history with 2 Olympic titles and 10 world titles under his belt. Moreover, he also held 144 consecutive wins (7 years) until 2021. Teddy Riner is known for his outstanding analytical skills both in and out of the tatami. Nonetheless, his phenomenal physic makes him a real genetic freak and somewhat confirms in the most part his overall domination in judo.
