This weekend (Friday 6 to Sunday 8 October) sees the IJF World Tour move onto Tashkent in Uzbekistan for the penultimate Grand Prix of 2017.
Kelly Staddon (-48kg) and Sarah Adlington (+78kg) will be the two GB judoka stepping on the mat this weekend a week on from the Zagreb Grand Prix.
Ford Judo Club’s Staddon has enjoyed some of her best senior results to date recently including gold at the Saarbruecken Senior European Cup and silver at the Belgrade European Open. She will take on former European Champion Eva Csernoviczki (HUN) in the first round in Tashkent.
Adlington has had a solid year at +78kg with a bronze medal at the Cancun Grand Prix as well as a fifth at the Zagreb Grand Prix last year. The World No.28 goes in as second seed in Tashkent where she’ll face home judoka Nazokat Ibragimova (UZB).
