Abbotsford Judo Club members earn medals

Trio of athletes take home four medals at Canada Cup

Abbotsford Judo Club members took home some hardware from the recent Canada Cup tournament in Montreal, which wrapped up on July 1.

Mitchell Wolfe earned a bronze medal in the senior men’s 66 kilograms division, and then competed in Argentina last weekend for the Pan American Championships with Team Canada. Wolfe is also set to represent Canada on a European tour later this year.

The bronze medal comes off a gold medal win at the Canadian Nationals back in May.

The AJC’s Isabelle Harris earned a pair of bronze medals, placing third in both the U18 and U21 63 kg divisions. The U21 bronze was particularly impressive, as Harris moved up an age class to compete. She also won gold at the Canadian Nationals.

Payton Harris was the top local finisher at the event, capturing a silver in the U18 81 kg division. The second place finish comes off a pair of bronze medals at the Canadian Nationals.

Aside from Wolfe, the Canada Cup concludes the season for the AJC, with action picking back up in the fall.
