A Bakewell Junior School student took on the North West’s best Judo players at the North West and Merseyside Regional Championships on 31 March 2019.
Idris Khan, who lives in Bakewell and trains at the Penistone Judo Club, defeated all his opponents with flair and perseverance. It was a proud moment for Idris as he was presented with a Gold medal by Amy Livesey, a TeamGB International competitor.
Idris’s coach, Matt said, “This is a great result for Idris and the Penistone Judo Club. I hope the success will inspire other kids to get involved in Judo, a sport for all”.
Idris hopes to secure a place on the Regional England Development Squad, a training programme for TeamGB hopefuls.
