Judo: Ben Moore

Ben Moore, a Year 8 pupil at Cowbridge Comprehensive School, travelled to the English Institute for Sport in Sheffield to compete in the British Judo Championships. This year Ben has moved up an age band and was competing in the Under 14's, even though he is still only 12.

Ben battled his way through some very tough competition making his way into the semi-final. Here he narrowly lost out in golden score to the eventual gold medallist. Ben then continued to battle through the repechage to win the bronze medal.

Due to his performance during the contest, Ben was selected to have the great honour of carrying the Welsh flag out for the medal ceremony. Well done Ben!
