Louie Harrison and George and Fredick Emms impressed and Yonas Aldous won three contests with Ippon scores – the highest score in the sport – against bigger opponents to win a silver medal.

Noah Aldous displayed great determination in the senior section and Joshua Heflin put in a mature performance, with both taking bronze medals.
