Hereford teenager Ross Cartwright wins bronze medal at Welsh Judo Championships

A HEREFORD teenager has collected a bronze medal at the Welsh Judo Championships.
Fourteen-year-old Ross Cartwright beat off the challenge of higher-graded aces from all over the country to win his medal at Hereford Leisure Centre.
“Ross has his yellow grading but, because of his body weight, was up against green belts,” said dad Andy Cartwright.
“We’re over the moon with his success and he was the only one from Hereford Judo Club taking part.”
Andy said that the Bishop of Hereford’s Bluecoat School will keep on training ahead of his next competition in Tamworth.
“It’s a good sport for young people to be involved with and if Ross wants to do it then we certainly won’t stop him,” said Andy, who himself is a coach at Hereford Judo Club.
