The Hampshire Judo organised event on Sunday 7 July saw Court Lane players medal in all three categories.
Jonty Bassil finally secured his first gold medal in the men’s 1st kyu and above competition. Three fine ippons also saw him pick up 30 points towards his Dan grade.
Brother and sister Ben and Chloe Lymer both fought in the junior red & yellow belt competition. This was Ben’s first event, and he did well to hold his own in a surprisingly aggressive group. Chloe battled back from a loss in her first fight to collect a silver medal like her brother.
Michael Churcher continued his transition across to adult judo competing in the men’s blue and under competition. He beat off a strong challenge from a Scorpion player, throwing and holding for a cumulative score. Osaka’s Harrison Grist was once again Mike’s nemesis, leaving Mike in a well deserved 2nd place.
Well done everyone.
