Konan Junior Olympics and Junior Open Results


Rick Joseph reports that the USJF’s BC Dage Corporation Travel Scholarship and MJDA funding dollars were well spent as Konan brought home 7 national medals between the 4 judokas, who were funded.

Daniela Gomez took a Bronze on the International day of the Junior Olympics in IJF down in Irving, TX. Gabriela Gomez who fights in Juvenile B captured a Bronze at the USA Judo Junior Olympics National Championship, a Silver at the JO Internationals and a Bronze at the U.S. Junior Open Judo Championships in Fort Lauderdale.  Nick Joseph won a Bronze medal at all three events. This consistent performance by Nick secures his # 2 national ranking for 2012 in the Juvenile A 58 kg. division.  Gabriela and Daniela are also highly ranked on the elite national roster within their respective divisions.

Ryan Osborne also joined us for the International Training Camp and US Jr Open. He had one of the largest and toughest divisions in the tournament and despite having an awesome training camp wasn’t able to medal, but fought hard and well
