On September 7 at noon, when a visually impaired Japanese judoka competing at the Workers’ Stadium fainted for ten seconds after she was thrown to the ground by her Brazilian rival, game-time medical volunteers sprang into action immediately. Rushing to the court, they checked the injured player and gave her first aid treatment until she came to. The Japanese judoka eventually dropped out of the competition.
据参与现场救助的医疗志愿者王宇介绍，事情发生在2号场地的第一场女子比赛中，一位日本选手对阵一名巴西选手。当时那名巴西选手采取了一项进攻技法，将日本选手摔倒在地，导致后者出现暂时性昏厥，失去继续比赛的能力。日本选手躺在地上大约4秒钟后，裁判示意医生入场，早已蓄势待发的医疗志愿者带着担架、颈托等器材上场，按照程序对其进行检查和施救。鉴于实际情况，王宇建议先把她抬出赛场。此时已经自行苏醒过来的日本选手谢绝了使用担架抬她出场，表示自己能够独立地走下去。教练建议其退出比赛，在场边换鞋的时候，王宇还上去关切地询问她是否真的没有问题：“Are you sure?”得到肯定的回答后才放心回到岗位上。
Wang Yu, one of the volunteers in the rescue effort, told this reporter that it happened during the first bout of the women’s judo event at No. 2 court. When the Brazilian attacked, she flung her Japanese opponent to the ground, causing her to fall into a stupor. After the Japanese lay on the floor for about four seconds, the referee called yame and beckoned the medical staff in. The paramedics on call went about the task right way, bringing along a stretcher, neck collars and other apparatuses. When the judoka regained consciousness, she declined her rescuers’ offer to be carried off the arena, and chose to stand up on her own. Following her coach’s suggestion, she pulled herself out of the competition. While the Japanese was changing her shoes, a solicitous Wang came up to ask after her. Only after the injured woman answered in the positive did Wang feel relieved enough to retreat to her post.
