A Midlothian judo club is celebrating a record haul of medals from the recent British championships.

Just-Judo returned from the 2013 British Cadet and Pre-cadet Championships at The English Institute of Sport in Sheffield with four gold medallists and British Champions, the most in the club’s history.

Hannah Moszczynski kicked things off with a bronze medal in the U52kg category.

Her training partner, Emily Rae, then took to the mat in the U57kg category and stormed to her first British titlewinning all her contests by maximum scores.

Alexander Short defeated a fellow Scot in the final to claim his first British Championship title, Rob Hamilton claimed the No 1 spot at U50kg and Valentino Volante landed his second British title and the U90kg crown.

Just-Judo holds classes throughout Midlothian, including Lasswade High School on Monday evenings. For more details contact 07899914360 or info@just-judo.com
