My favourite submission in the Judo Olympics 2012

Many people, especially in the jiu jitsu community noticed developments in the ground game portion of the Judo Olympics 2012 in London. There were a number of chokes and armbars that ended fights, and I even recall seeing an oma plata attempted by an Austrian male judoka.

The lady doing the submission gets it in easily, goes to her side to adjust it and comes back on top to finish it by holding her opponent's leg.
