Medals at the IAPS Girls Judo Championships
Huge congratulations to Georgia and Emanuelle from St Francis School, who recently won Gold and Bronze medals at the national IAPS Girls Judo Championships in High Wycombe.
The competition was open to all girls who attend IAPS independent schools.
Emanuelle was in the largest group (U36kg) and she was unlucky to lose her first contest despite being in a commanding position. Undaunted, she then took four great wins with some great judo to claim 3rd spot and her Bronze medal. This was a very assured performance, particularly as it was her first competition.
Georgia started with a solid win and her performance got stronger with each subsequent contest, until she finally ran out of opposition and claimed her excellent and well-deserved Gold medal.
Both girls gave maximum effort, well done!
