Takeshi Ojitani captured his second open-weight National Judo Championship on Friday, while beaten semifinalist Hisayoshi Harasawa was chosen for the over-100-kg division for this summer’s Rio de Janeiro Olympics.

Ojitani, 23, won his first title against 26-year-old Daiki Kamikawa two years ago and was triumphant again as he scored two wazaari for an ippon victory in the final.
