Gold and Silver medal success for Guernsey Judo

 

While the Juniors were competing in Worthing, 18 year old Louis Plevin was enjoying more medal success at the London Universities Open Championships, winning Gold in the Junior (Under 20) at under 90 kilos and then going on to win the Silver medal in the Senior tournament.

Louis next competition is the Welsh Open and following a competition in Holland he will be in Sheffield competing in the British Championships in the Junior (Under 20’s) category, fighting at Under 90 kilos.

Coach Mitch Agnelli said he is delighted that Louis’ move to Anglia Ruskin University has put him into one of the strongest judo university squads and in only a short time he has shown just how much potential he has in the sport. With South Africa holding the Commonwealth Judo Championships next April, Louis must be considered an outside chance of a medal in the Junior section and could even challenge for some of the Senior medals. The only obstacle in his way is the cost of getting there.
