Kuka Da Silva also made it to the final and fell just short, losing due to a well placed counter, but still came away with a silver medal.

A fine day for Pride Judo Club was concluded with a gold medal win for Arianna Feher.

Instructor Lionel Hibbert said: "It's is always fun for our cubs (under-8s) to watch a bigger brother or sister but to compete at an early age is inspiring them even more.

"To say it's another outstanding performance is definitely not enough."
