Win tickets to the British Judo Championships in SheffieldSubscribe
UK Sport 17 January 2013
UK Sport is offering you the opportunity to win tickets for the 2013 British Judo Championships at the English Institute of Sport in Sheffield this Sunday (20 Jan).
Two of the stars of British Judo’s London 2012 campaign will return to action as Olympic silver medallist Gemma Gibbons and Paralympic silver medallist Sam Ingram both compete.
Gibbons will compete in a -78kg category which is brimming with talent and includes Wales’ Adu Dhabi Grand Prix silver medallist Natalie Powell and Commonwealth Champion Caroline Kinnane.
Gibbons said: “I’m really looking forward to returning after my time out through injury and it’ll be great to return in front of a home crowd.”
London 2012 Olympian Ashley McKenzie, a former European u23 champion, will see action in the -60kg category.
2011 European bronze medallist Colin Oates fights in the -66kg category while fellow London 2012 Olympians Danny Williams (-73kg) and Chris Sherrington (+100kg) all take to the mat in Sheffield.
Two-time Olympian and 2011 European bronze medallist Sophie Cox battles in the -57kg category.
Paralympic silver medallist Sam Ingram, who has aspirations to compete at the 2014 Glasgow Commonwealth Games, will take on the country’s leading fully sighted judoka in Sheffield.
Coventry-born Ingram, who went one better than his Beijing bronze medal in London, was born with conal dystrophy and has been visually impaired all his life. He is now based in Edinburgh and will compete in the -90kg category alongside training partner and five-time World Cup medallist Matthew Purssey.
Sam said: "I'm really looking forward to fighting in the British Championships once again. I always enjoy the challenge of fighting fully sighted judoka and I can’t wait to get back on the mat in front of a home crowd.”
