GB Judo have announced the judoka that have been selected for the European Cadet Championships in Porec, Croatia, from 23rd-25th June.
The 14-strong team of British Judo stars of tomorrow have been selected from the judo home nations based upon domestic and international competitions, with three fantastic Welsh judoka being amongst the selections.
The European Cadet Championships form part of the British Judo Cadet ID list that is used to identify judoka for the GB Cadet Futures Training Camp which will be in October 2022.
Following his bronze medal at the Fuengirola Cadet European Cup, Welsh judoka Ben Moore (Bradley Stoke) has been selected to compete in the -73kg category. Laurence Hill (Dragon’s Judo Academy) will take to the mat fighting in the -50kg category. Kylan Aylward (Dragon’s Judo Academy) will join his three Welsh compatriots competing in the -66kg category.
Tim Ellis, Performance Pathway Manager said:
“After a fantastic few months, we are really pleased to announce the fighters identified for the Cadet European Championships. The fact that so many cadets are performing so well is a real reflection on the clubs, the personal coaches and the Home Nation programmes as well as the fighters involved, and a huge credit goes to those people.”
Congratulations to all three judoka on their fantastic achievement and best of luck in their preparations ahead of the Championships.
