Year 10 student takes bronze in U18 British National Judo Championships!

Congratulations to Year 10 student, Oliver Almond aged 14, who  won his third national judo title in 4 years, taking Bronze last weekend at the 2019 U18 British National Judo Championships

The U18 Cadet category is a significant step up in difficulty as it allows the use of full-adult judo rules including submissions by strangle and arm-lock which were are not permitted at U15 level. This year the double national champion, followed up his gold medal wins at U12 in 2016 and U15 in 2018, by clinching a bronze medal in the much more difficult U18 category.  Aged just 14, Oliver will compete for the next 3 years in this U18 age-band, so winning a medal in his first year at this level against much older competitors is a remarkable achievement.

Oliver’s success at the British Championships gives him automatic selection to the England Development Squad where he has the opportunity to be selected to represent England at more advanced European events in 2020!
