Silver medal for Toby

Toby Attwood earns a silver medal at national judo ranking event.

TOBY and Ben Attwood competed in the Heart of England Judo championships, which is one of the four national ranking events held each year.

Toby fought extremely well and only came unstuck against the British number one, winning an excellent silver medal and valuable ranking points.

Toby is currently ranked number two in Great Britain at his age and weight, and has his sights set on the number one spot in the British Championships in October.

Ben has regularly produced medal winning performances in most national and international events, but is now in a transitional stage of his judo career competing against older opposition.
