Last weekend, one of our students, Oliver Hogarth, was involved in the state championships for his chosen sport: Judo.
And he won Bronze!
So I gave Ollie a little interview to find out a bit more about his achievement.
JD – So what is Judo?
OH – It’s a martial art that involves grappling and trying to get your opponent down using throws over your shoulder and hip.
JD - Where did the State Judo Championship take place?
OH – It happened at the Gold Netball Centre in Jolimont.
JD – How long have you been doing Judo?
OH – For about 5 years – since I was about 5 or 6.
JD – What level are you in Judo?
OH – I am currently Orange belt but at my next grading I will be going for Orange belt Black tip.
JD - Who were you competing against in the State Championships?
OH – The competition is held in weight classes. I thought I was going to compete in one class but they put me into another so I had to go up against some really big kids.
JD – So you earned a bronze medal. That makes you the 3rd best “Judoka” for your weight class in the whole state. How does that make you feel.
OH – It’s pretty good. I now get to go to the National Championships on the Gold Coast – they have been postponed due to Covid – 19 so I have to wait to see when they will be happening.
Well thanks for sharing this with us Ollie. Well done.
