MSMAS Judo Players Medal at Welsh Nationals 2009 ......

Emyr ap Sion, MSMAS YuDansha & Coach took Gold in the Men's -73Kgs Category, Tom Wood claimed 5th in the Men's -66Kgs Category, whilst Bethan Rees, another MSMAS YuDansha & Coach took Bronze in the Ladies -57kgs Category....


Welsh National Championships. 1st March 2009.

Emyr ap Sion finally won his much desired Welsh Title !

This is a highly competitive weight category and although over recent years Emyr has put in some fine performances, he has also narrowly missed out on “the title” on several occasions.

Emyr won his group which included his rival at -73kg Stephen Boore, who he went on to beat again in the final.

Also, at the end of the day Emyr decided to have a little fun and entered the Open category. He defeated the newly crowned -100kg champion, Matthew Wade (Haverfordwest) and the +100kg champion, Kevin Clark (Imperial) to take a well deserved bronze medal.

To cap a successful day Emyr was then awarded 'The Player of the Tournament' Award.

Bethan Rees, fighting in 57kg came home with a bronze medal after good performances and some narrow defeats in a close pool.

Tom Wood had the toughest day. Drawn in an incredibly talented pool for the -66kg it was to his credit that he progressed to the knockout stages. He fought his way to the bronze medal fight when the referee then wrongly awarded his throw to the opponent.

Tom’s Judo technique has improved over the past 12 months and his performances were a credit to himself and his dedication to claim a well deserved 5th place.
