Sally Conway World Championships 2017

Posted: 01/09/2017

JudoScotland ambassador Sally Conway took to the mat today at the 2017 Judo World Championships in Budapest.

Sally had a great start to the day winning her first fight against Greece’s Elisavet Teltsidou by Ippon. She progressed into the second round where she met World number four Sanne Van Dijke of the Netherlands, who she defeated with her second Ippon of the day.

Unfortunately it was not to be for Sally as she was knocked out of the competition by Puerto Rico’s Maria Perez by Ippon.

Sally’s journey to the Worlds would not have been possible without the support of the ‘Team behind the Team’: her training partners; sportscotland; sportscotland Lottery Fund; British Paralympic Association; British Judo Association; and in particular all of the hard working individuals at the sportscotland institute of sport.
