Jamie steps up to the challenge


Trent College Judoka, Jamie Spencer-Pickup has continued to compete at the highest level over the summer. He achieved his 1st Dan (Black Belt) after winning five straight fights at his grading competition and after passing his theory test and has moved up to fight in the 66kg weight category.

Jamie was invited to fight for the Midlands in the National Teams’ event in July, helping the team to Silver in a very tough competition.

He then fought at The Heart of England Tournament, which proved to be a mixed day for him. Having missed the weight category it meant he had to fight at 73kg level. Some fantastically calm and dominating fighting from Jamie meant he won his pool and moved into the final. Unfortunately, after some great attacks he eventually lost to a stronger and taller opponent. A silver medal was some consolation though for him.
