Melbourn Judo Club players from all age groups took part in the Eastern Area closed championships, resulting in four area champions, two silver medallists and a bronze.
Hamish Cameron, aged 43, tested out his recent knee operation with great success, winning the men’s U81kg category with a stunning foot sweep, see picture right.
Matthew Boyce, 14, and Jacob Hanson, 13, both became area champions in the 12-15 age group.
In the U12s event, Jack Taylor, 11, took gold.
Lara Haslam, eight, only lost out to a 10-year old national medallist for her silver medal, while Brandon Keeling, eight, was also only beaten by a much older and more experienced player.
Both are very exciting prospects for the club.
Rafe Sims, aged nine, and Fin Stevenson, also nine, fought hard and gained some good contest experience, with Rafe picking up a bronze.
