Summary

Antal Kovács (HUN) had been third at the 1992 European Championships but was little known prior to the Olympic year. He won the gold medal in this class in an upset, although no judoka had stood out prior to Barcelona. In the final Kovács defeated Britain’s Raymond Stevens, also relatively unknown. But Kovács would have a long and very successful judo career. Competing thru 2004, he would eventually win six medals at the European Championships, was the 1993 World Champion, and silver medalist at the 2001 Worlds.
