Making her debut, Gyovanna won her first contest in her group to secure a first bronze medal.dmori and kyle at crayford

The next group up were the 8 to 11yrs yellow and orange belts. Kamal, Kyle and Liam dominated the u30k category with another combined display of attacking judo. Kamal pipped Liam to the gold by virtue of the greater points tally, while Kyle claimed the bronze.

In the u38k group, Daniel was surprised by a defeat in his first contest, but quickly returned to winning ways to secure a gold. Nelson started with an excellent victory and continued into the later rounds but just missed out on the medals. Luan made very short work of the u42k category winning in fine style.

The final group were the 12 to 15yr yellow and orange belts. Anna made it a second win at Crawford following last years victory wth a gold in the u44k. Amel won the silver in the u48k beating teammate Mariam, who had to settle for the bronze. The final medal was claimed by Mohud in the u60k winning a well deserved silver.
