Siblings are champion

28 December 2006
A GIRL from Weston, England who was sent to judo class to burn off some excess energy has been crowned a British champion.

Georgia Wood, aged eight (8), won the National Judo Championship in the under 25kgs (55 lbs) class, and her older brother Zach Wood, aged twelve(12), was runner-up in the under 30kgs (66 lbs)  class.
The siblings started judo together 18 months ago when their mum Lorain Wood sent them to classes at the Sakura Bana Judo Club at Herons' Moor Community Primary School.

The pair made such rapid progress that they were entered into the National Judo Championships held in High Wycombe, Buckinghamshire.

In a tough competition Georgia beat seven(7) other contestants to win the gold medal and title of national champion. Zach won six(6) of his seven fights to secure a bronze medal.

Just two weeks later Georgia and Zach were entered into the Reading League and both came away with gold first place trophies in the team contest.
