The Portage Judo Club's had more success recently. Five fighters were sent to the Inner City Open at Tec Voc School in Winnipeg and they managed to return with four medals.
The fighters secured two gold's, a silver, a bronze, and a fourth place finish. Cody Hendrick won gold in the U12 -42kg category, Ryder Maryniuk also won gold in the U12 -45kg category. Troy Doherty managed a silver medal in the U16 +73kg category, and Aidan Town won bronze in U12 -50kg. Eric Olson finished fourth but competed in a higher class.
"The fighters all performed incredibly well at the tournament," says coach Brian Case. "All the fighters looked dominant in their weight classes, even Eric Olson, who competed against older and larger fighters. We're continuing to grow the club and these fighters really did well."
