Max Stewart won his third Junior European Cup gold medal  in Leibnitz, Austria.

Once again the 17-year-old from Lordswood Budokan in Birmingham was at the top of the medal rostrum, adding to his titles earned this year at the Coimbra and Kaunas Junior European Cups.

Stewart won all six of his fights in the -73kg competition, seeing off Nimrod Pinhas (ISR), Dus Ratkovic (CRO), Gabor Karpati (HUN) and Yert Torenov (KAZ) in the early rounds.

In the semi-final, Stewart beat Sagi Muki of Isreael for a place in the final, where he beat Igor Potpaparic of Slovenia for a well deserved gold medal.
