Firstly, congratulations to all competitors, volunteers and organisers for a successful 60th Anniversary 2016 National Championships.

During the event a number of honours were conferred on members who have made significant contributions to Judo in New Zealand over a long period. These awards included Honorary Officer to Derek Maggs (HEN WB) and Jason King (GIS EC). These were conferred in 2014 but had not yet been awarded.

Honorary Member awards were made to Stephen Tarring (KOI WN), Craig Bartlett (HOW AK), and Antoinette Earl (JNZ) for service to the sport at a national level over a long period.

The Judoka of the Year was awraded to Darcina Manuel (GIS EC).

Graeme Fair (TAU WB) was received a Liftime Award of Grade of 5th Dan.

Brent Cooper (JNH AK) was inducted into the JNZ Hall of Fame as the second member of the Hall. Brent achieved a gold medal at the 1990 Commonwealth Games held in Auckland (to date our only CG champion), and a 5th place at the 1988 Seoul Olympic Games (to date the highest ever placing by an NZL athlete).

Congratulations to all who were recognised for their service and results.
