Derry’s Callum Nash from the Yamakwai club is pictured here winning gold in the Junior Men’s under 66kgs weight division at the NI Judo Open in the Foyle Arena.

James Reid followed up his recent Silver medal in the British Championships with a Gold medal in the Senior Men’s under 90kgs category. It took Reid just 57 seconds to dispose of Ealing’s Silviu Nastasa in the final to take the Gold medal. Reid then flew out to Antalya, Turkey to take part in a Great Britain Olympic training session.

Reid’s fellow Simply Judo club colleague Matthew Elliott claimed Gold in the Junior Men’s Under 73kgs classification.
