Judo Silver Medal for Oliver Almond
Congratulations to Oliver Almond who came second at the British Schools Judo Championships in Sheffield on 12-13th March. He was representing the school in the Year 12/13 section in the U73kg category. Oliver won his first three contests without any of his opponents registering a score against him, including a tough semi-final encounter against the second seed, in which he applied a strangle which forced his opponent to concede. In the final bout, despite defending his opponent’s attacks very effectively for most of the contest, he eventually succumbed to a worthy throwing technique to end the day with the silver medal.
