Three judo medals for Camkada

Harry Smith and Ross Beale. Absent: Jack.

Three members of Camkada Judo Club took part in the Auckland International Judo competition last week, coaches Harry Smith and Ross Beale and judoka, Jack.

First up was Jack, who despite losing once, pulled off two victories to make it through to the third and fourth-place fight – where he won the match to take home bronze.

Next up was Ross, fighting in the senior under 99kg division, giving away a big weight advantage but still managing to make the final, where he walked away with gold.

Harry was up next fighting in the over 60s under-90kg division. Having had a busy year, unable to get into much serious training, he called on his years of experience and skill to take the gold medal.

Camkada Judo Club is based out of their dojo rooms on Maclean St, just off Thornton Rd. Trainings are Monday and Wednesdays, and Fridays in Te Awamutu. Visit the Facebook page to find out more.
