Form 3 pupil Cari Lewis was crowned Welsh Judo Champion last Saturday whilst competing in the Welsh Closed Championships in Sophia Gardens, Cardiff in the U40kg category.
Not only did she power her way to the Gold medal in the U40kg category but she then fought up a weigh and went on to win Bronze in the U44kg category for girls under 16. Head of Christ College Emma Taylor said: “This has been something that Cari has been aiming to achieve for quite some time and I’m so pleased that she is now is the proud holder of a Welsh title. This is particularly pleasing due to her missing out last year due to an arm injury, but she has bounced back in some style!”
Along with her medals, Cari received an invitation to attend weekly training at the National Dojo in Cardiff with the Welsh squad. In the short term, Cari now faces another big competition next Saturday, competing in the Heart of England judo championships in Walsall, which will then be followed by the Welsh Open Championships in November.
Mrs Taylor added: “Cari has her sights set on the 2014 British Championships in Sheffield where she hopes her Welsh squad experience will prove useful and hopefully will help her bag a medal or two!”
