Lordswood Budokan’s Max Stewart, 18, won two contests before losing out to eventual gold medallist Shohei Ono of Japan. The Junior European silver medallist returned to winning ways in the repechage by defeating Georgian Mikheili Chokheli by a waza-ari and ippon. In the bronze medal contest Stewart lost out to South Korea’s Hae Joo Jung to finish a very creditable fifth-place.
He has now been selected for the European u23 Championships from 18-20 November in Tyumen, Russia so we all wish him good look for this event.:)
