Jenna-Jaye Nicholson won two fights by ippon, lost one fight and won a bronze medal.

Chris Parrott's judo was outstanding and he won a well-deserved gold medal after defeating all his opponents with ippons.

On February 1, Marham Judo Club travelled to the Netherlands to compete in the Hooglands Judo competition.

This is a prestigious event, attracting over 600 competitors, travelling from as far as Israel to compete.

Marham Judo Club entered six skilled players; Jenna-Jaye Nicholson, Cailean McCallum, Zak McCallum, Adora Storton, Sophie Buller and Chris Parrott.

The competition was fierce and all Marham competitors performed exceptionally well. The return journey home was the hardest opponent, with delays at the Eurotunnel and road closures due to the snow, but eventually they returned home at 3.30am, demonstrating the club's firm dedication.

The club looks forward to further international competitions later in the year.
