It wasn’t just the turn of the Scottish Judoka this weekend at the British Championships, this weekend saw a number of promotions of the JudoScotland volunteer workforce.

The event saw Elizabeth-Anne McGinty being promoted to Competition Controller.

Becoming a Competition Controller will allow Elizabeth-Anne to run lead on competitions, a truly remarkable achievement.
