Osaka Kwai Judo Club made the trip north to Aberdeen this weekend with three young judokas competing in the Granite City Grand Prix.

Travelling without their Sensai, the three Osaka girls were all called on to the mats at the same time on Saturday morning only for a computer glitch with the scoring system delaying Skye and Lauren’s starts.

This meant that Darcy was first up and she made a blistering start to the competition, coming out on top in a bruising encounter that saw her opponent retire from the competition at the end of their bout.

The 12-year-old was just as dominant in her second fight, storming to victory in under a minute as she secured a spot in the gold medal match.

Darcy continued her fine form in her final fight of the day, proving too strong for an able opponent to come away with a well-deserved gold medal and valuable Grand Prix points.

With the scoring glitch fixed, Skye got underway with the youngster moving up a weight category for the day. The change in weight proved to be too much for the 12-year-old with two tough losses bringing her competition to an end, taking away some great experience in the higher weight class.

Lauren, meanwhile, endured a frustrating day, arriving at 9am only to see her opening bout delayed until 3.30pm and then pushed back a further two hours to begin at 5.30pm.

The 19-year-old used all of her experience and showed great determination to put this behind her with an impressive performance against the higher graded Dan judokas to win a silver medal.
