Sebastian brings home sil­ver

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - CLASSIFIEDS -

LO­CAL judo cham­pion Sebastian Temesi brought home the sil­ver medal from the Ocea­nia Judo Union Open in Samoa re­cently, but there is no rest for this am­bi­tious fighter.

In a bid to keep his name in the run­ning for the Com­mon­wealth Games Aus­tralian squad next year, Sebastian has been com­pet­ing all over the world scor­ing huge points along the way.

Next up for Sebastian is the Tokyo Grand Slam from Novem­ber 29 to De­cem­ber 1 where he will be one of only five Aus­tralians com­pet­ing at the event.

But Sebastian will not be the only lo­cal face at the event, Coral Coast Judo club chief i nstruc­tor Ge­orge Bren­decke has been se­lected to be the of­fi­cial Aus­tralian team coach at the event.

Seven se­nior mem­bers of the Coral Coast judo club have trav­elled to Tokyo to cheer the Aus­tralians along and will also be un­der­tak­ing a cul­tural tour of his­tor­i­cally sig­nif­i­cant Judo sites.
