Japan's formidable women's wrestlers

This isn't pro wrestling, but it is wrestling....

Japan's formidable women's wrestlers launched their Olympics campaign in convincing style as world champions Saori Yoshida and Chiharu Icho reached the 55kg and 48kg finals Saturday.
Defending 55kg holder Yoshida overwhelmed Canada's Tonya Verbeek 2-0 in the semi-finals, a rematch of their final clash at the Athens Games four years ago, to face China's 18-year-old Xu Li in the gold-medal showdown later in the day.
