Team Scotland and JudoScotland have today announced that Glasgow 2014 Gold medallist Kimberley Renicks will join Team Scotland’s Judo team for the Birmingham 2022 Commonwealth Games.

The announcement was made today as part of the JudoScotland competition kit unveiling as the Team prepares for their final training camp ahead of next week’s opening ceremony.

Kimberley heads into the Games on a high following a gold medal win at the Winterthur Senior European Cup last weekend, where fellow Team Scotland teammates Malin Wilson (-57kg), Rachel Tytler (-78kg) and Sarah Adlington (+78kg) also medalled.

Commenting on her selection, Kimberley said, “I am excited because it is my second Games, and I will be fighting at a different weight so it will be a different experience from Glasgow 2014. It was difficult through the Covid period, and I knew that fighting a weight above I would be up against two other athletes during qualification. I am happy to have been selected and I will try and go out with a bang.”

Kimberley (-52kg) will join a team of 11 Judoka representing Team Scotland following the withdrawal of Hannah Wood from the Games due to injury.
