    At what weight do they compete? They are both as fast as lightning.

    At under 100 kg (220 pounds) ... same weight division as Fedor fought in on the Russian national team. It's a nasty division, probably the toughest in judo in that you have to be both very fast and very strong. Of course, the over 100 kg guys would win against the under 100, but mainly because the guys winning over 100 kg tend to be around 130 kg and strong like you wouldn't believe. But since there aren't that many 280 pounders with great athletic abilities around, the talent pool at the top in over 100 kg is a lot smaller.

    BTW guys like that feel even faster if you're on the the mat with them. The current Canadian national coach, Nick Gill, won a silver at under 100 kg at the Sidney olympics ... when you take grips with him he's big enough that you expect him to be slow. Turns out he's not :redface:
