Commonwealth Silver Medal!


Commonwealth Silver Medal

St Wilfrid’s Y11 student Caitlin recently won silver medal in the Judo at the VI Commonwealth Championships!

We sat down with Caitlin to find out more:

 

Q: How long have you been practising Judo for?

I’ve been training for 11 years now and love it. I go several times a week.

 

Q: Tell us about the competition and your opponents.

In this competition, you get scored for throwing, pinning and arm-locking. I competed against 2 ladies from India in my rounds. One of them was a senior, who we were competing against in the same weight category. She beat me in the final but it was close!

 

Q: How do you feel about your silver medal?

I’m happy with it! Although it’s not what I really wanted, I know it’s still a great achievement.

 

Q: What’s next for you?

I’m going to keep training and working hard. I have been given the opportunity to train with the Team GB Paralympics team so I’m working towards that and hopeful to one day get a call up to represent Great Britain.
