Moberly Stars at the Alkmaar International
The Alkmaar International was a first event abroad for many of the Moberly Stars and it was quite an event. Split into 10 categories of competitors from Holland, Belgium, Germany, Sweden among others, the level of judo was very high.
Moberly’s youngest competitors Luca and Myeisha produced outstanding performances to win bronzes in the u38k and u36k respectively in the minors.
The pre-cadet groups were among the largest and Luan won a bronze in the u55k with 4 straight wins after losing his first contest. Oliver Almond (u38k) and Dinari and Alex (u50k) were very unlucky not to win a bronzes after 5 hard fought contest each. While Oliver Lee (u46k), Liam (u38k) and Maddie (u52k) enjoyed a great experience.
In the older category, Michael won a great silver in the u66k Juniors.
However, Reuel (u66k Cadet) and Tyrese (u73k Junior) were both forced to pull out of the event due to the team having to leave the venue to catch the train home! Both were well on the way to medals but we had to leave…!!
