The list of the top medal catchers in the IJF World Tour are about 75% women. Definitely consistent. Urantsetseg Munkhbat took 33 IJF World Tour medals. The experienced judoka are on top who competed since 2009. Amiran Papinashvili and Amartuvshin Dashdavaa are the only two men in this team of power women.
In the list still a few women who retired such as Van Emden (NED) and Harrison (USA). Also remarkable is the number of Mongolian athletes, in fact 2.5 including Galbadrakh, now fighting for Kazakhstan. Malzahn, Tcheumeo, Harrison and Powell were all fighting U78kg. Quite a dominant set of women.
When it comes to gold medals, Harrison was obviously very successful with 13 gold in the World Tour, but Matsumoto (14), Agbegnenou (14) and Majlinda (15) are even more efficient.
