Toby just misses out on a gold medal
Brothers Toby and Ben Attwood were both in action at the Kent International competition at the weekend.
TOBY and Ben Attwood competed at the Kent International judo competition held at Crystal Palace, London, last weekend.
With over 1,500 competitors, this is one of the hardest events on the judo calendar. Ben fought extremely well against some tough opposition in his new 60kg weight category, only to be defeated in the semi-final and finishing a respectable fifth place.
Ben has been selected to represent the West of England and will compete at the national team events in Sheffield on July 9.
Toby won his first two fights with relative ease, scoring maximum points, one with a massive throw and the other pinning the opposition to the ground with some excellent judo.
