Judo Bronze for Britain's Michelle Rogers

Judo Bronze for Britain's Michelle Rogers

Michelle Rogers both won bronze for Britain at the 2007 European Championships, which took place in Belgrade, Serbia from the 6th-8th April.

Rogers won bronze, in the –78kg weight category, on the third and final day of the Championships.

 

It was the fifth Senior European Championship appearance, and fourth Senior European Championship medal for Michelle, who trains at the Scottish Institute of Sport.

The 30-year-old Atlanta Olympian ended just outside the medals at the 2006 European Championships finishing in 5th place.

 

In Serbia, after losing her third fight to Esther San Miguel of Spain, she beat Claudia Zwiers of the Netherlands and Lucia Morico of Italy in the repechage. In the fight for bronze she overpowered Svlatlana Tsimaskenka of Belarus to take the medal.

 

2006 European Champion, Edinburgh’s Sarah Clark was disappointed to miss out on a medal in the –63kg weight category, losing the bronze medal match to Olympic silver medallist, Claudia Heill of Austria.

 

Britain’s two youngest competitors put in promising performances after being drawn against tough competition.

In the –70kg weight category, Sally Conway from Edinburgh fought hard against Anett Meszaros of Hungry, who is former Junior World Champion and the Current Junior European and –23 years European Champion. 19-year-old Conway lost by two minor scores in a closely fought match.

 

The Brits will continue their quest for Beijing qualification at the Vejen World Cup for Women and the Rome World Cup for Men on the 28th -29th April. British World Champion Craig Fallon hopes to compete in Rome after being forced to withdraw from the European Championships after his medical advisors judged that it was too soon after a recent shoulder operation.
