We had only one competitor at this year’s Hampshire closed but Andrew did us proud, fighting really well, and getting a silver in the u81 category. He even managed to avoid any penalties for leg grabs, despite thinking about it a couple of times!
He won all fights in his pool, and was unlucky to get caught for a soft ippon from the eventual gold medal winner. Because the final positions were determined by a second round pool, his last fight determined the silver medal and a tough scrap with an inexperienced but strong and fit player was eventually determined by a penalty in the golden score period.
So congratulate him at the next session!
