1st place ~ Sarah ADLINGTON ~ Great Britain (GBR)

2nd place ~ Alicia ALONSO ~ Spain (ESP)

= 3rd place ~ Ksenia CHIBISOVA ~ Russia (RUS) & Melanie GASCH ~ Germany (GER)

MSMAS wish her luck as her Judo carreer unfolds....

Britain won 9 medals at the 2010 British Open.

The host nation finished in third place overall, with the Netherlands taking the top spot, followed by France.

Britain won three gold medals, one silver and five bronze medals, just one gold medal down from last year’s results.

British golds were won by Gemma Howell (-63kg), Ashley McKenzie (-60kg) and Sarah Adlington (+78kg).

After 10 months out by injury, the British Open played stage to Gemma Howell‘s return to competition.

Howell, who has made her place previously in the -57kg weight category at the Championships, competed in the -63kg competition and seemed untroubled by the change.

This is Howell’s second medal at the Championships, adding to the bronze she won in 2007.

Ashley McKenzie, who was the only reigning British Open Champion defending their title going into the event, looked at ease throughout the day and retains his title in the -60kg weight division for the third consecutive year.

Nathon Burns took the silver medal in the -60kg weight category and James Millar won the bronze.

Sarah Adlington, who had to miss the British Open last year due to injury, looked classy in the +78kg gold medal final winning with an impressive ippon throw against opponent Alicia Alonso of Spain.

Colin Oates (-66kg) , Sally Conway (-70kg), Chris Sherrington (+100kg) and Siobhan O’Neill (-52kg) also won bronze medals for Britain.
16 nations in total competed in all over the two days.

Full British Results:
Sarah Adlington (+78kg) Gold
Ashley McKenzie (-60kg) Gold
Gemma Howell (-63kg) Gold
Nathon Burns (-60kg) Silver
Colin Oates (-66kg) Bronze
James Millar (-60kg) Bronze
Sally Conway (-70kg) Bronze
Siobhan O’Neill (-52kg) Bronze
Chris Sherrington (+100kg) Bronze
