Young Tower Hamlets judokas put in a solid performance at the British Judo Association London Area Development Event, held at the UEL SportsDock.

Valentine Lita, a Year 6 student from William Davies School, and Ilyas Allalou from Sir John Cass School put in impressive displays throughout the competition.
Oaklands School’s girls enjoyed their first ever judo competition having completed a course and were able to win three medals.
Students from Stepney Green, St Paul’s Way, Bow, Stebon and Lawdale School also took part in the competition where everyone finished with a medal.
