After a break from competitive judo for 15 years, Brian became British Masters Champion last September. This entitled him to represent the country at the World Championships and he didn’t disappoint, putting on a superb display to take a medal.
The prestigious event was held in Sindelfingen, Germany on 28-31 May and attracted contestants from all over the world. The Masters series is for judokas, judo competitors, aged over 35.
Black belt Brian, 45, was delighted: “I was very proud to represent Britain at such an important event and really pleased to come home with a medal.”
Brian plans to compete in more events and will defend his British crown in the autumn.
He works for Diageo in Shieldhall and passes on his knowledge of the sport in his spare time as a coach at Pro Judo.
