Four members of Swindon Judo Club competed in the British Judo Association Schools Championship at the weekend.

Amelia and Ethan Shave, Koga Ishida and Caelan Hammerton were all in action for the Swindon club in Sheffield where they competed at national level for the very first time.

Lydiard Park Academy student Amelia was in fine form as she grabbed a silver medal at the championships.

Bradon Forest School’s Koga also performed well as she finished fifth.

Ethan (Lydiard Park Academy) and Caelan (St Joseph’s School) also did well but finished just outside of the medal positions.

The club’s coaches said: “We are all incredibly proud of all four children. They all fought amazingly and they were a credit to their schools and Swindon Judo Club.

“This is the first time the club has had four children compete at this level so the future is looking very exciting.”
