The Team: Patrick Lam, Sparkles MacDiarmid, Roberta Griffiths, Sergey Arykov, Aurie Tzeng, Jack Ure, Lucinda Griffiths, Alexis Tzeng.
Gold: Roberta G, Lucinda G, Alexis T
Bronze: Sparkles Mc
The team was somewhat smaller than we first anticipated, with several entries withdrawn in the fortnight leading up to it.
Sparkles proved himself once again Wellington’s best open weight fighter with his Bronze in the Senior Men’s open.
Roberta was moved up two weight classes to -78kg. While winning the Gold, she will be off the mat for a few weeks with a concussion. Better safe than sorry.
