Berkhamsted-based Rush Judo took some of their Elite squad to Walsall for the U18s English Open at the weekend.
There were some really solid performances with a number of Rush’s judoka moving up to new weight categories.
The medal tallies were as follows:
Silver: Gergo Berendi, Emily Niven and Leah Hasler.
Bronze: Hannah Niven and Evie Halvey Jacobs.
Fifth-place: Alex Jenkins.
A special mention went to Charlie Bennett who notched five wins in a large group of 38 judoka and was unlucky not to progress to a medal fight.
Rush coach Laurie Rush said he was pleased with the results, and added: “There were some new techniques being tried out and they were working, which was great to see. Well done to all.”
