So the day is nearly upon us. In my opinion the National Team Championships is the second most enjoyable in the country (BUCS being the most enjoyable!).
This year I will once again be coaching the combined services team (Army, Airforce and Navy). This team has medalled in the past but never won it as far as I can remember. Unfortunately this year we will not be entering a women’s team so it is all down to the men.
I think we have a good chance, every member of our A team is a full-time judo player and all are very experienced. our line up looks like this:
66kg – Lewis Keeble
73kg – Johnny Morris
81kg – Emanuel Nartey
90kg – Victor Ahavior
+100 – Chris Sherrington
Whilst this is a very strong team you cannot bet on the national teams. It is so unpredictable. So we will have to wait and see 🙂
I also have a 52 player from my club, Natasha Collins, representing the East. It will be interesting to see how they get on.
I’ll update on twitter (@judobob) throughout the day and try to blog too.
