The successful Carmarthen judo team.
(L-R): Kate Walters, Jonathan Walters & Ffion Whitefoot.
Three young judo fighters from Carmarthen travelled to the Samurai Open Mini Mon competition in Kidderminster on two separate dates.

The first to fight was Jonathan WALTERS on Sunday 25th of March, in his first mini mon. It was obvious he was a little nervous but he fought very well showing excellent judo skills to gain a bronze medal.

The two other competitors were Ffion Whitefoot and Kate Walters (Jonathan's elder sister). The girls fought exceptionally well despite finding their opponents a tough bunch. Ffion and Kate brought back a bronze medal each.

All three were congratulated by their coach, Louise Beard, who said "It was a long day for each of these youngsters but they showed great judo techniques which auger well for the future." The competitors thanked their coach and parents for travelling to this competition so early in the morning.
