Following the success of the Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth Games, for both Team Scotland and Judo, we look forward to the opportunities that this news provides for our younger Judoka to compete on the world stage. We also hope that this will provide a stepping stone for them to compete for Scotland at the Commonwealth Games in Durban in 2022. This welcome news also provides JudoScotland with the opportunity to once again work with our valued partners at Commonwealth Games Scotland.”
