Judo success for talented Oliver


A budding young judo star from Highfields put up a brave fight to secure the silver medal in a prestigious tournament.

Year 9 student, Oliver Causer, competed in the Pre-Cadets (under 42 kilos) category at the Northern Home Counties Open.

Wayne McDonald, Judo Development Officer at Wolverhampton University’s Institute of Sport, said: “He fought extremely well and showed great composure during the whole competition. 

“Unfortunately in a closely fought final which he lost he came away with a silver medal, valuable experience, ranking points and a performance that we all can be proud off.

“We at the University of Wolverhampton Judo Club are proud of his achievements.”
