Following a full medical assessment by the GB Medical Team and an intensive training weekend at ONST, Andrew Burns has been selected for the European Championships at -90kg.
Andrew was provisionally selected at the second stage of selections, but due to having to complete a medical assessment and fitness test, Andrew’s selection would not be confirmed until he had met the fitness standards as set out by the Performance Director and medical team.
We are pleased to confirm that Andrew will be joining the team travelling out to European Championships on the 18 April.
