Recently, Jamie Spencer-Pickup in Year 8 attended the Independent School Judo Competition in High Wycombe.
There were a number of students taking part in the competition from different Independent Schools from around the country, with 2 pools of 4 Judoka's. Jamie managed to dominate his pool with ease winning all 3 fights with powerful throws.
In the final Jamie came up against a student who had previously beaten him. It was a tense contest, but Jamie set up his opponent and managed a throw and score to give him a well-earned Gold.
He is now the Independent Schools Champion in the Under 46KG category and may hope to follow in the footsteps of Old Trident, Ruebyn Richards, who has recently claimed Gold in his first A-Class tournament success, beating Turkey’s Muhammet Talha Sari last week. Ruebyn won six fights in all, including two by sudden death, after dropping down a weight division.
We wish Jamie and Ruebyn well in their forthcoming competitions.
