Judo stars inspire pupils’ fitness
Commonwealth Games judo stars hit the fitness trail to inspire youngsters from a city school to get into healthy habits.
Kimberley Renicks, who won gold at Glasgow 2014 in the women’s under 48kg category, was at Glashieburn Primary School, Bridge of Don, yesterday to lead youngsters through a circuit training session. She was shadowed by fellow judoka Stephanie Inglis, 29, who also cemented her place in history among Scotland’s judo squad at the Games, winning silver in the women’s under 57kg category.
Kimberley, 29, then told her story from when she began judo aged four up to her Commonwealth glory and beyond. The children, who raised more than £2,000 in sponsorship money, were then presented with prizes for their fundraising achievements.
Kimberley, from Bellshill, is now targeting a place at the Australia Gold Coast Commonwealth Games next year, while Stephanie is continuing her rehab after battling back from injuries in a moped crash in Vietnam last May.
