There will also be around 30 poster presentations. Anglia Ruskin has representation in the presentations from Dr Mike Callan and two posters, one from me and one from Janaina Magalhaes, who is a student on the EJU level 4 coaching award. Janaina is presenting on ‘O Soto Gari: the Role of Renrakukuwazas to this Major Throw’ and I am presenting ‘A temporal Analysis of the u48kg Women’s Judo at the 2010 World Championships’.
