Keira’s Youth Games judo medal

Bishop Challoner student wins bronze at Crystal Palace finals

Keira Strong brought some local pride to Tower Hamlets last Saturday when she won a medal at the London Youth Games judo finals at Crystal Palace.

The 14-year-old Bishop Challoner student won bronze in the female junior over-70kg class.

“I wasn’t really expecting to win a medal,” said Strong.

“I competed here last year and won nothing so this year’s been a lot better.
