The majority of the NZL team to compete in the upcoming Commonwealth Games are currently in Europe training and competing as they build up to the event.

The full team meet in Glasgow on 19 July, and the Judo competition starts the day after the Opening Ceremony and runs for the first 3 days of the Games (24-26 July). We have athletes competing each day of competition.

NZL Team Success at OJU Champs
Monday, 28 April 2014 10:05

Auckland hosted the 2014 OJU Championships on Saturday, and the home support proved successful for the 37 member NZL team.

Overall the team collected 31 medals, with 12 gold, 9 silver, and 10 bronze. Of particular note were the Senior Men and Women results which provided very valuable World Ranking Points to aid their selection chances for the Commonwealth Games.

The Senior Men dominated the division, winning all four titles from -81 up, and bronze in each of the other 2 categories in which we had entries. The Women picked up 2 titles, 3 silver, and a bronze.

Congratulations to all the NZL team and officials, and the local event organisers for a successful event.

A list of NZL medallists is attached.
