Silver medal for nine-year-old judo star

Samantha Gipp completed a fantastic fortnight with a silver medal at the London International Judo competition at the weekend.

Held at the ExCel centre, the nine-year-old competed in the under-25kg category and did enough throughout the meeting to secure the silver.

Gipp also took part in the Northern Home Counties Mini Mon the previous weekend in High Wycombe and took gold in the same category.

Back at the London International, Conor Barnard picked up a gold in the under-50kg category, whilst Hayley Willis won silver in the under-48kg event.
