Wembley’s Pride Judo Club saw brothers Philip and Stephen Myint win bronze medals at the Metro & Crayford event at Thomas Tallis School.

Eight-year-old Philip was in the over-35kg red belt group and came through four contents to win his medal.

And 10-year-old Stephen competed in the over-55kg yellow belt group for the first time, giving his all to make it onto the podium as well.

Sensei Lionel Hibbert said: “One of our greatest aims is to keep members enjoying the Olympic sport of judo. If our students are having fun, they will want to attend practice. As they practice, they learn.”

Pride Judo Club is always looking for new members, with the first practice session offered free of charge.

The club train at Vale Farm Sports Centre, Watford Road, Wembley, with five to 16-year-olds on Monday and Wednesday (5-7pm), over 16s on Thursday (8-10pm) and Sunday (12-2pm). Call 07414 305577 for more details.
