at the Games of the XXVI Olympiad
|Venue||Georgia World Congress Center|
|Competitors||32 from 32 nations|
The gold and silver medals were determined by a single-elimination tournament, with the winner of the final taking gold and the loser receiving silver. Judo events awarded two bronze medals. Quarterfinal losers competed in a repechage match for the right to face a semifinal loser for a bronze medal (that is, the judokas defeated in quarterfinals A and B competed against each other, with the winner of that match facing the semifinal loser from the other half of the bracket).
As there were more than 32 qualifiers for the tournament, two first round matches were held to reduce the field to 32 judoka.
- Harry Van Barneveld (BEL) defeated Frank Estaban Moreno Garcia (CUB)
- Alexandru Lungu (ROM) defeated David Khakhaleishvili (GEO)
The gold and silver medalists were determined by the final match of the main single-elimination bracket.
The losing semifinalists as well as those judoka eliminated in earlier rounds by the four semifinalists of the main bracket advanced to the repechage. These matches determined the two bronze medalists for the event.
