Osaka Kwai Judo Club rounded off their 2019 season in some style with silverware at the Scottish National Championships a fortnight ago.

Making the short trip along to the Ravenscraig Regional Sports facility in Motherwell, Osaka had originally planned to travel with five young judoka before ending up with two due to injury.

The two youngsters who were fit enough to compete, Darcy Millar and Liam Foy, were on form over the two days as they both went on to clinch a medal.

First up, Darcy started her weekend off on a bright note after being presented with the Scottish Grand Prix trophy.

To the actual competition itself and the 12-year-old, having recently moved up an age and weight category, came up against a tough fighter opening in her opening bout, falling to a narrow defeat.

Darcy showed some grit and determination to bounce back from that early set back to win two of her next three fights to claim a well-deserved national bronze.

Liam was up next on Sunday afternoon and, despite fighting in a new age banding, didn’t hold back with his first fight lasting just 35 seconds after he caught his opponent with a well-executed sweep.

The 10-year-old continued that form with another two fine wins to book a spot in the national final where he came up against an older and more experienced fighter.

A technical glitch in the scoring system saw the match brought to a temporary standstill which unfortunately led to a lapse in concentration for the Dumbarton youngster who had to settle for a fantastic silver along with some great experience.

Both Liam and Darcy had further cause for celebration after the event after they were invited to train with the Scotland National development squad.
