Islander wins gold at national Judo Championships

An islander won Gold and Silver medals while representing the Isles of Scilly Judo Club at the British Judo Council National Championships last weekend.

Harry Stone, who started Judo on Scilly at the age of 7, added to his five National Champion BJC titles to claim Gold in the black belt Dan grades U81kg category at the event in Kettering.

He then competed in the Dan Grade open against players of over 100Kg and finished second to claim Silver, losing out to the 100Kg category winner.

Harry is currently in his second year at Bath University, studying for an MSC in Sports Science. He is in the Elite Judo Academy and has represented Bath University and England in Iceland and Denmark this year.

The Isles of Scilly Judo Club recently celebrated its 50th anniversary by hosting its first ever area competition on the islands.
