Bremen and Thuringia for British judoka

This weekend a number of Britain’s top cadet and junior judoka will be competing at the prestigious International Masters Bremen and International Thuringia Cup on Saturday 19 and Sunday 20 March.

Both events this weekend will be followed by training camps which will give the British judoka an opportunity to train with some of the top cadet and junior players at close quarters.

In Thuringia Michelle Boyle (+78kg) will be aiming to back up a strong performance at the Coimbra Junior European Cup which saw her pick up gold as will Lubjana Piovesana (-63kg) and Acelya Toprak (-57kg) who also medalled in Coimbra.

British Cadet champions Amy Platten (-44kg) and Molly Harvey (-48kg) will also be looking to gain important experience in what will be a tough competition.

Over 900 judoka are expected to compete at Bremen where Dan Powell (-73kg) Rhys Thompson (-100kg) and Wesley Greenidge (+100kg) all picked up medals in Coimbra last week and will be hoping for more of the same while British Cadet champions Joshua Giles (-55kg) and Jacob Aldridge (-66kg) will be looking to test themselves against international competition

Thuringia will be live streamed here and here and results from Bremen will be published on their website
