What a great weekend for our JudoScotland ambassadors, Sally Conway and Sam Ingram.

Sam Ingram travelled to Odivelas, Portugal to compete in the 2018 IBSA Judo World Championships.

Sam saw off challenges from Oleksandr Pominov (UKR), Benjamin Goodrich (USA) an Anatolli Shevchanko (RUS) before facing Georgia’s Zviad Gogotchuri in the gold medal fight. Sam has only been competing at this new weight category (-100kg) for just over a year, and to bring back a silver medal was a terrific result.

Meanwhile, fellow JudoScotland ambassador Sally Conway won her sixth medal of 2018 with a superb gold at The Hague Grand Prix on Saturday 17th November.

Sally on top form defeating, Melissa Heleine (FRA), Gabriela, Willems (BEL) and Maria Portela (BRA). Sally’s final fight against Samme Can Dijke (NED) did not go ahead due to injury for the Dutch judoka. A brilliant performance and well deserved gold medal for Sally Conway.

Well done to all Team GB athletes, who brought home six medals over the course of the weekend.
