We are pleased to announce that, this weekend, Lizzie Tompkins (Third Form, Vanbrugh) continued her rise through the ranks of competitive Judo by winning a Gold Medal at the Hampshire U16s (U44kg) Open Championships. This competition in Eastleigh is run by the British Judo Association and we would like to congratulate her on this noteworthy achievement!
Lizzie has trained in Judo for years and regularly participates in competitions for this martial art. She has previously been successful, with a fifth position finish at a National Ranking event, and has beaten a British Squad member out of competition at her pre-cadet class. Last weekend, Lizzie had a podium finish with third place in a competition at the High Wycombe Judo Centre.
