Beddau tourny success.
Junior members of Carmarthen Judo Club.
A group of young judo fighters (under 16 years) from Carmarthen Judo Club recently attended a competition, held at Beddau, where they showed skill and determination winning several medals. These championships, sponsored by EGH, are just the type of build up required by athletes before attending major championships such as the Welsh Judo Championships held in June. In this competition many prospective Welsh hopefuls were laying out their stall.

Tejay Hall - U27kg - Red Belts put in a very mature and confident performance gaining a silver medal. She lost her only fight to a Welsh national fighter.

Iwan Beynon - U34kg - Yellow Belts, he came fifth narrowly beaten by the gold medallist, and although putting in a strong performance fighting for bronze he missed out on this occasion.
