GOLD medals were won by Joshua Porter and Nicholas Johnson as Littleport Judo Club hosted their annual competition.

In the red and yellow belt section, debutant Joshua Porter fought above his weight category with the under 30kgs players. Porter rose to the challenge and fought superbly to win through to the deciding contest and took the gold medal.

Littleport's Nicholas Johnson performed excellently throughout and won all of his contests to take the gold medal in the under 50kgs category.

In the orange and green belt section, Anjela Griffiths, fought well in the under 40kgs weight group and won all but one of her contests to take the silver.

Jordan Colwill, in the under 60kgs, sustained an injury in his first contest but valiantly continued and went on to win a bronze medal and in the under 38kgs and, another Littleport competitor, Adam Roberts-Taira also claimed bronze. Roberts-Taira defeated two of his opponents with spectacular throws, then lost a contest, but won his final match on a penalty against his opponent. Three players finished with three wins each but Roberts-Taira ended up third on points.
