Callum Davidson has taken gold at the North West Area Closed Ippon Judo League, Lancashire fixture, held in Blackburn earlier in October. This new format has been introduced to decide the County and Area Champions and select those fighters who will represent the North West Squad 2018/2019.
The Year 9 pupil was on impressive form throughout the day winning all four of his fights and scoring maximum points in three of his four contests. Showing a mature approach in all his fights Callum’s transition to groundwork was quick and decisive.
‘I fought well today against some tough opponents so I’m pleased to have won the opening competition,’ said Callum.
This success follows the bronze medal Callum won at the British Schools Judo National Individual Championships earlier this year.
Well done Callum and we wish you all the success when representing the North West in 2018/19.
