Abstract
This research explains the theories behind and the progress on an experimental system of ranking elite level Judo athletes based on their relative skills rather than their results in competitions.

Qualification for the Olympic Games Judo tournament is now subject to the IJF ranking list. The list is based on results in a series of elite level competitions. The IJF ranking list awards points to athletes based on the position the player achieves in the category results. The system being tested in this research looks at the players met in the competition then awards and deducts points to the players based on the result of each match and the relative skill levels (as indicated by their ranking points).

The system being experimentally used is based on the ELO ranking system used in Chess and many other sports and online in systems like Microsoft's Xbox Live rankings. The experiment is for the duration of the qualification period for the 2012 Olympic games, May 2010 - May 2012

It is hoped that the constructive criticism from the Judo research community at the European Judo Championships will provide valuable input that will improve the ranking system. By providing an alternative to the current IJF system it is hoped that this research highlights the strengths and weaknesses of both systems.

The experimental system has been running online at http://www.rwjl.net and uses information obtained from Mathias Fischer's TTA software at http://www.ippon.org without which the research could not be conducted.
