Marti Malloy has won the bronze medal in the women’s -57kg category of the 2012 Olympics.  She threw 2008 Olympic champion Giulia Quintavalle of Italy in 2 minutes and 34 seconds of the bronze medal match.


A quote from the IJF report on day 3:

“The second of the female bronze medals went to Marti Malloy, who claimed USA’s first medal of the judo competition. Malloy was a surprise package, who upset the odds in several contests, including an incredible win over the number two seed Telma Monteiro of Portugal in her first fight. She lost out in the semi final to Caprioriu, who threw her with a huge Uranage to score Ippon. In the bronze medal contest she once again proved her calibre in the weight by throwing Quintavalle for Ippon with Ko-uchi-gari. “
