Scottish Judoka Neil MacDonald Selected For 2017 European Judo Championships

Posted: 05/04/2017

Scottish judoka and Junior World No.1 Neil MacDonald has been selected for the 2017 European Judo Championships in Warsaw, Poland from 20 – 23 April.

Neil will be joining an experienced British Team of 11 for his debut European Championships in Poland. His selection for this senior event follows on from a successful year in 2016 where he won a silver medal at the Junior European Championships in Malaga. This announcement comes only weeks after Neil was named top ranked -60kg Junior judoka in the world.

The British selection will see a mix of experienced judoka, including 2016 Olympians, and debutants take to the mat for the first major championship of the Tokyo 2020 Olympic cycle.

Neil MacDonald will be competing on first day of competition, Thursday 20 April, with a live stream via EJU.net.
