After the first two days of competition at the 2017 World Veterans Championship in Olbia, Sardinia, GB Masters judoka have won eight medals including three gold.

Saturday 30 September saw the M6 (55-59) M7 (60-64), M8 (65-69), M9 (70-74), M10 (75-79) judoka in action and all three GB golds came that day.

Kevin Kinney (M6 -90kg) was in outstanding form, winning four of his five contests by ippon, including the final against France’s Herve Di Pillo.

Terence Watt took home the M9 -90kg title, having won M8 -90kg gold at last year’s Championships. Like Kinney, Watt was in impressive form. He won each of his contests by ippon including the final against Uwe Staps (GER).

Nicholas Kokotaylo (M7 +100kg) was too strong for the opposition as he also won all of his contests by ippon. The British judoka finished his final against Russia’s Elgudzha Gagishvili just under two minutes left in his final.

There were four more medals won that day including silvers for Danny Bidgood (M9 -73kg) and Thomas Moyse (M8 -100kg). There were also bronze medals for Joseph Johnson (M8 -90kg) and Patrick Bryan (M7 -100kg).

Day Two (Sunday 1 October) saw Mark Adams (M1 +100kg) add an eighth medal to the tally for the GB Masters team.

Monday 2 October (today) sees the M4 and M5 categories in action followed by the M2 and F1 – F10 categories on Tuesday 3 October
