Chief Referee Report on Worlds, Belgrade, Serbia
In attendance Brian Noble, Billy Brennan and Dale Gamble.
All of us re qualified until 2013 after taking our theory exam before the briefing on Tuesday night, the briefing went on for along time and finished at 00:30!
My highlight of the competition was when i refereed the women's -61kg individuals Japan v Spain with Japan the eventual winner at 7 - 5, it was a very fast, close match with good clean techniques. But the star of the show was Billy who refereed the match of the championships which was R.Aghayev (Azerbaijan) v K.Matsuhisa (Japan) in the -75kg which was a thrilling match and has had thousands of hits on YouTube leading to it now been labeled as the scorpion kick bout! The eventual winner was the Azerbaijan world champion who came from being three points down with only a few seconds left scoring the sanbon point with a spectacular take down leading the match to be decided in extended bout, well done Billy!
