Judo

Over the Easter break, Ben Moore (Year 7 at Cowbridge Comprehensive School) took part in the Sportif International Judo Tournament. This was a very well attended ranking event with Judoka representing countries from Canada, Portugal, Slovakia, Norway, Denmark, and Sweden and from all across the United Kingdom and Ireland. Ben had a really tough group and narrowly lost his first fight by a single penalty. However, he fought his way all the way through a difficult repachange to win a well-deserved bronze medal (photographs attached). This was a great achievement and will stand him in good stead for his next event in Belgium in May which he is travelling to with the Welsh Judo Squad. Well done Ben and good luck for May!
