Thetford Closed – Eastern Area Championship 2012

With three entrants at the Eastern Area Closed, Cambridge came back with two medals. Captain Chris Coward took gold from the men’s U90, ¬†with three wins out of three. Rob Blackburn got through his pool in the men’s U73, but lost in the semi-final and left with bronze. Liang Wu was unlucky to be drawn in a tough pool with two dan grades. Finding himself at a considerable experience disadvantage, he fought well but didn’t manage to leave the pool.

Thanks to Nick for coming along and providing coaching on the day. This was a good end to another successful year for Cambridge Judo.
