Commonwealth Judo Championships
I was the only pre-cadet from Northern Ireland (ages 13 – 14) to receive a medal, which was a shock because I was one of the youngest girls going! I was only hoping to place in the top ten!
It was a hard competition against girls of many different nationalities. I fought in a group of 17.
The event took place on Saturday the 28th of September. I had five fights and I lost my first – I think due to nerves!
The experience was really surreal but I thoroughly enjoyed it!
