21 of the best British University judoka will be looking to leave Coimbra, Portugal with gold at the 2018 European University Games from Monday 23 to Wednesday 25 July.

The GB team is made up of those judoka that medalled at the 2018 BUCS Judo Championships in Sheffield earlier this year.

A number of the team have not only experienced success on the domestic stage but also at international level.

At -90kg Coventry’s Jamal Petgrave has medalled multiple times at Senior and Junior European Cup level as well as winning bronze at the 2017 Junior European Championships in Maribor.

Petgrave has also had success in Portugal having won bronze at the Coimbra Junior European Cup last year.
