The live updates, lift-by-lift, are great.

http://results.2003wwc.com

The men's 77kg class was a shocker. 12 lifters failed to total, including the 2 U.S. lifters. The winning total this year would have gotten 8th place in the last pre-Olympic year Worlds.

The women are setting records left and right.

Now in Jiu-jitsu that's the object of the sport.
Interesting, perspective is everything.
