Commonwealth Games Medallist Stephanie Inglis Announces her Retirement from Competitive Judo

Posted: 27/07/2017

Commonwealth Silver Medallist Stephanie Inglis announced her retirement from competitive judo via a statement on her social media accounts yesterday evening. Steph was a valued member of the JudoScotland Performance Squad and a leading member of the Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth Games Team, where Scottish Judo made history. The decision has not been an easy one for Stephanie to come to, however following her horrific motorcycle accident last year where she was initially given only a 1% chance of survival, she has been left with little choice.

In her statement Stephanie stated, “It is with a heavy heart that I have to announce that due to my accident I am unable to return to the sport I love and therefore need to call it a day on my sporting career in Judo…”

She continued “I know I am capable of achieving anything that I want to in life. I am excited to see where my future will take me. To my fellow Scottish and British judokas, I wish you every future success…”

JudoScotland would like to wish Stephanie the best of luck on her future endeavours. We are certain that she will be a huge success in whatever it is she decides to do and will continue to inspire many on and off the mat.
