What a weekend R.K.JUDO CLUB had recently! Visiting the UK for the British Judo Council National closed championships was a very successful event yet again for our raiders and coaches. Nine players entered the tournament winning between them 3 gold, 1 silver, 3 bronzes and 2 fifth places as well as a surprise Team badge and 4th Dan promotion. And here's how it happened.
Ashton Hancock, 9, defeated his pool to fight in the semi-finals. He had tough opponent ahead but listened well and did what he needed to seal a place in the final, winning that for the first Gold of the day. Daniel Hrida, 10, fought well, just missing out on a decision to make the final, but came back with a win to finish with bronze. Ben Barkby was next. Fighting his way through the pool to the semis with another win, and another final bout. This time unfortunately another decision but not in Ben's favour, so had to settle for silver. Ryan Whitehead always seems to have it tough, but in true spirit and noticeable improvement Ryan fought his heart out, winning fights but just needed one more to medal. Unfortunately it wasn't to be and he finished 5th, but he was player of the day in our eyes. Next in his first ever event away from home, Samuel Portuese, fought well and did not disappoint. Lack of experience was the only thing but he still finished 5th. Trying for the double was Tom Whybrow in his last u12 years event. And he didn't fail to do so: Gold again and another National title. Alicia Fernández Rivers, another first timer, did well moving through the group and taking home her first National Bronze. The last of the girls, Lisa Lindberg,13, was determined to go home with a medal. Focused on the job ahead she was over the moon to finally finish with her first National title and a Gold medal. Our only senior this trip was Roxy Van der Hoofd. Struggling with illness the week before she still fought much bigger opponents and, going the distance, ended with a bronze for her efforts.
Also on the day Ben Barkby was awarded his British Judo Council Team badge for his continuous success and Sensei Rodd his 4th Dan for his outstanding results and services to judo, an outstanding weekend making us coaches and parents proud. R.K.Judo club is going from strength to strength.
