Senior Medallist in the Newaza Competition: Gold to Nathan Staudt. Silver to Eriks Ostrovskis.
Well done and congratulations to Daniel Whyte who gained the necessary points needed for his Dan grade/black belt at the November National Grading in Livingston. Daniel won two of his three initial contests with Ippons which meant he had accrued enough points for his black belt. Daniel was then offered a line up. A line up (a minimum of 3 players) consists of back to back contests with no breaks, where you need to win by Ippon before progressing on to the next contestant. Daniel won all three contests in his line up.
