The Campbell River Judo Club continued their Island tournament run in Victoria and eight competitors added to the club’s impressive medal collection this year.

For some of the older juniors, this was a selection event for the 2012 BC Winter Games, with Daniel Henry and Luke Lindenbach being chosen to represent the club in February.

Lindenbach fought his way to silver at the Dec. 11 tournament after losing his first fight.

Haley Henry dominated her 48kg division for the second tournament, winning all of her matches and taking home the gold.

Jordann Warner had a good showing in a mixed division, winning silver.  Anthony Henry and Sabastian Lafleur, having to fight in the same division, put on a very entertaining match for second and third place, with the fight coming down to a judges split decision in favour of Lafleur.

Brothers James and Paul Smurthwaite had great fights in their second tournament this year placing second and fourth respectively, as well as Hayden Teramura competing in his first ever tournament in which he won bronze. The Campbell River Judo Club’s 2012 season begins Jan 4, for more information visit www.crjudoclub.com
