Congratulations to Jake in Year 8 who recently earned himself a silver medal in the Visual Impaired section representing Aspire Academy at the British Judo Schools Championships.

Jake, who trains out of Bacup Judo Club every Monday and Thursday, has been participating in the sport since he was five years old and is currently Orange belt 9th Mon.

In the week prior to the competition Jake was lucky enough to get the opportunity to train with London 2012 bronze medalist Ben Quilter, which was a real inspiration.

After his success Jake is already looking to his next competition and gaining his green belt.
