British Judo Championships

On Saturday, Sam & Tristan John competed in the Year 8-9 boys category in their respective weight categories (Sam -46kg, Tristan -55kg). Tristan had some hard fights in a tough weight category, but unfortunately lost both his fights. Whilst Sam performed outstandingly to win 5 fights on the trot, before losing out to the gold medalist in a very competitive weight. Both boys train at Pontarddulais Judo Club.


On Sunday, Ben Hughes competed in what was  again, a very competitive weight in the Year 6-7 boys category (-34kg). Ben had 4 fights & won 2/lost 2. Ben competes for Samurai/ Gendros Judo Club.

This is a prestigious event in development sport & is one of the only Judo events that allows players to represent their schools. All boys have done exceptionally well.
