Dennis van der Geest says goodbye to judo.

The 33-year-old judoka, who became heavyweight world champion in 2005, at a press conference announced that he was missing the motivation to proceed. At the Olympics in Beijing Van der Geest in his fight against Tamerlan Tmenov caught a serious arm injury. Since then he is no longer in action. Next weekend, he would make his comeback in Tunisia, but he is now off.

Van der Geest wanted to stop after the World Championship in August in Rotterdam, but after the silver medal of competitor Grim Vuijsters at the European Championship qualification is little more feasible for the judoka who won bronze at the Olympics in 2004 and ten national and two European titles conquered.

"Physically I was still on"
... Van der Geest said: "My feeling is that I still could win a medal at the World Championship. Rationally, I know that the deep motivation for everything to do not longer is present.

Short CV Dennis van der Geest
- Ten times in a row Dutch champion;
- Twice winner Eurocup for clubs with Kenamju;
- Twice European champion, 2000 and 2002;
- Winner of 11 World Cup's;

Uchishiba wins consecutive national titles

Olympic champ Uchishiba wins consecutive national titles (April 4 2009)

Two-time Olympic champion Masato Uchishiba beat Tatsuaki Egusa in the men's 66-kilogram final to win his second consecutive title on the first day of action at the national weight-class invitational championships on Saturday.
Uchishiba, who captured back-to-back titles in the same weight category in Beijing last summer, claimed his fifth overall championship crown at the tournament, which doubles as the final selection meet for this summer's world championships in Rotterdam.

Hiroaki Hiraoka took the men's 60-kg crown for the second year running at Fukuoka Kokusai Center.
Ayumi Tanimoto, who also successfully defended her title at 63 kg in Beijing but is struggling with a dislocated knee, lost on points to rival Yoshie Ueno in the women's final. Ueno won her second straight title and fifth overall.
Maki Tsukada, silver medallist in Beijing, was the other big-name casualty as she was pinned by Mika Sugimoto in the women's over-78 kg final and had her bid for a seventh straight title crushed in her first official tournament since last summer.
Ryoko Tani, who missed out on her bid for a third consecutive gold and took the bronze in Beijing at 48 kg, is not competing as she is pregnant with her second child.
Up-and-coming judoka rivals Emi Yamagishi and Tomoko Fukumi are likely to vie for the ticket to Rotterdam.
The names of men and women judoka, excluding the heaviest weight categories, selected to compete in the world championships in August will be announced after the conclusion of the meet on Sunday.

Two-time Olympic champion Ueno retires

Japanese judoka Masae Ueno, the women's 70-kilogram gold medalist at the 2004 and 2008 Olympic Games, announced her retirement from competition Monday.
Ueno, 30, also a two-time world champion, said she lost motivation to continue her career after winning her second straight Olympic gold in Beijing last August, although she did not rule out the possibility of making a temporary comeback in the future
I thought about competing in the national championship (next April) for my next goal, but I couldn't recover the vigor I lost after the Olympics, Ueno said. I just want to take a rest from being on top and I think I'd be able to come back if I want to in a few years.
