Judo Academy reach British C'Ships!

The Judo Academy and NI Pathway Squad achieved a milestone in attending the British C'Ships for the first time. Aodhan McGivern represented NI in the cadet Under 60kg category. The biggest UK event of the year saw 33 young fighters compete for the accolade of British Champion.

Aodhan won his first fight by ippon with drop seoi nage against an opponent from Wales to reach round 2. He was defeated by eventual bronze medallist and one of the tournament favourites in his second fight.

Aodhan fought again in the repechage, but lost to a fighter from London. With two years in this category still remaining, placing and medals are in the offing.

A fantastic experience for all involved.

Next week sees older brother Conall and Ewan Murray attend the Junior and Senior British C'ships.
