 NZL representative Haley Baxter (KAI CA) is one of only two entries from OJU at the YOG Judo event (the other being a Fijian). Haley lost her first round to Lithuania, but won her first repechage fight!

Haley, competing in the combined -57/-63 category, lost to her first opponent by ippon. Her Lithuanian opponent went on to win the pool and reach the semi-final. Haley then won her first repechage fight against Togo by ippon in 9 seconds. She unfortunately then lost her next fight against Lebanon in about the same time, putting her out of the competition.

A great effort to be the only judo representative from Oceania in the judo competition at the first ever Youth Olympic Games. Well done Haley!
