Fresh from winning her second straight Olympic gold at the Athens Olympics, Japanese judoka Ryoko Tani said Monday she is undecided on competing in the Beijing Games in 2008.

“I want to set myself new targets and discuss (my future) with the people close to me,” Tani told reporters at Narita airport after returning from Athens with nine other judo medalists.

“My husband still has games left so for the moment I’m just going to root for him while watching TV,” added the 48-kg champion.

Tani’s husband Yoshitomo plays for the Japan national baseball team that faced Australia in the semifinals.
