Last weekend (11th November) saw Active Judo player, Milly Hailstone compete at her very first national championships. Milly, having won medals in tow other competitions prior to this event went in feeling confident but this was definitely a new level for her competitively. With sheer determination she overcame nerves and produced some of the best judo she has done so far. She won four of her five fights, only losing in the final to an experienced player. This was something we weren't going into the competition expecting, but of course we hoped for it and Milly really excelled herself. She was noticeably ecstatic with her result and thoroughly enjoyed the day. Well done Milly, onwards and upwards!
