Jack Rogerson made up a massive jump in competition performance when he competed at the Kent International at Crystal Palace on 28 June.
As the photo above shows, Crystal Palace is a massive venue, and for the Kent International is usually laid for 7 full size mat areas. Add to that the huge numbers that the event draws, the humidity from the swimming pool that is under the same roof and only separated from the “arena” by a walkway – all told, Crystal Palace is a daunting venue.
Jack started strongly, with a win in the first round, before a second round loss put him into the repechage. Jack picked himself up and scored another good win, before a second defeat put him out of the tournament.
Jack is showing a fantastic level of consistency, and has a good platform to build from.
