Judo junior king in Euros call-up
A Cambuslang teenager has been selected for this month’s European Judo Championships in Warsaw. Neil MacDonald is a Scottish judoka who is junior world No 1 in his weight class. The 19-year-old, who trains at the British Judo Centre of Excellence in Walsall, is the top-ranked -60kg junior judoka and he won silver at the 2016 Junior European Championships in Malaga. The youngest member of the British team, this will be Neil’s European Championships debut. He will compete on the first day of the competition, which runs from April 20 to 23. See next week’s Reformer for an exclusive interview with Neil before he heads to Poland.
