Amazing Judo stars Hannah Niven (Year 10) seen on the left and Emily Niven (Year 12 ) fought for England at the UK School games at Loughborough University 31st August – 3rd September. In preparation for the Championships both girls have been training diligently three times a week at the Rushjudo Club in Berkhamstead.

Hannah Niven focused hard on winning and won gold in her weight (U48KG), beating older, higher graded girls. She said ‘I honestly didn’t think I would get a gold medal, so I was really surprised when I did ’ Determined Emily also fought furiously and also won bronze in her weight class (57KG) beating higher graded and ranked girls. She was visibly shocked after the championships saying ‘ I was so surprised that this time I beat people I have never beaten before’. The whole event was generously sponsored by the Lottery and Sport England. Congratulations to both girls for achieving such fabulous results.
